Could be:

1. if her hands shake abit while takeing a image that might be it.
2. bad quality selected in cameras settings, read manual for more info on quality setting.
3. lens problem, is it dirty?

if this problem hasnt been here since the day the camera whas bought and none of those 3 work then there might be a hardware issue with the camera, lens damaged? etc.

try takeing a image by haveing the camera sit on a table, then use your pc to check if the picture is blurred.

You can take the camera for analysis to a local electronics or pc repairshop.

How can i adjust settings for blurred pictures on Samsung ES15

That would depend on why the pictures are blurry.

If the pictures are blurred because of camera motion, you need to either use a faster shutter speed or place the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

If the pictures are blurred because the subject is moving, you need to use a faster shutter speed.

If the pictures are blurred because it's out of focus, you need to ensure that the camera is focusing on what you consider to be the subject, not what the camera chooses.

Camera constantly takes blurred pictures

Appears that the auto focus mechanism is not working, This anomaly is most obvious in lower light situations when focusing is much more critical.

If the camera was new and two months old I would either return it for another one or have Nikon repair the lens assembly under the terms of its warranty.

My pictures are not clear. They appear blur

With digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower.

If none of these is the problem, there may be a fault requiring service (probably not economically viable unless they will do it under warranty).

Lost disk

Usually the maker has a website to download the drivers you need so your computer and camera can communicate. If you are looking for the photo editing programs that come with the camera then unless you registered your camera with the manufacter, they will usually charge you for another disc.
