XP - Win32 Generic Process/ Google.ca/webhp errors

  1. Hi,

    I've run XP for several years without any major hiccups and yesterday I started getting 2 distinct errors:

    1. Generic win32 process causes an unexpected error and is shut down. The internet would not work as a result
    2. I would get random popups in Firefox going to an ad or to google.ca/webhp

    Restarting solves the first problem temporarily. I've run Malware and AVG and nothing was found. Any help to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

    Try running Temp File Cleaner and Free Comodo System Cleaner.
