How do I stop my cat from violently attacking strangers when they come over?

So I've had my cat for a few years now and she's awesome and all but about two years ago my Grandpa came over and she went hysterical.
I'm not sure what about him triggered it, but she got really nasty and started hissing and howling at him. Anyway, now she does it to everyone she doesn't know, but the people she has met before (even like once) she doesn't have a problem with.
If you try to go near her when she is being like this she will back up and continue to hiss. Also toys and treats will not distract her.
It was never a big deal before cause she had met all my friends at one point or another before the "Grandpa incident" but ever since getting back from college I can't have other people that I've met come over without locking her up somewhere.
So what are my options to get her to stop this behavior?
