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.

"Error page assistant" is not wording found at the Google site. Either your
friend has installed a search add-on or their search functions were
hijacked.

I searched at google and results showed that this error message is from
something called "Navexcel." Reference:

It can be removed using a Spybot Search and Destroy. Install the program
and before running, update it with the current definitions.
