When I type in a search engine, google.com for example, and then type any
word, I get an error message saying, "Error Page Assistant". What is the
problem?

This is not my computer with Windows XP, I am trying to fix it for a friend.
Any help would be appreciated.

The first thing to check on any Windows machine with an Internet problem
is the virus/malware status. Go through the following removal steps
systematically, doing all work with updated tools in Safe Mode:
