When anyone logs on to this computer in our clinic we get an error that looks as follows:

hppusg.exe - common language runtime debugging service
application has generated an exception that could not be handled

process ID = Oxb84 (2948)
Thread ID = Oxf64 (3940)

Click ok to terminate application
Click cancel to debug application

I have clicked both and it doesnt seem to make any difference, nothing happens.

why am I getting this error and how do I stop it from popping up?

May be a bug in some program. Send a bug report to the program's author.
To find out which program is causing the error, look in event logs: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/event_overview_01.mspx

The buggy program may be hppusg.exe, which appears to be an HP printer's program. But check the event log for more info...

HP may be able to help you in person - with online chat or by phone. I recommend the online chat. Just check out the link above for steps..

hppusg.exe is a file (or program) from hp.

"buggy program" means that there are errors in the program that cause annoyances or that can cause lockups, crashes, etc.

I have the same issue on one of the machines here.  I have not found anything helpful on HP's support site or online chat.  I did run across a possible fix that I have not tried yet because I need purchase approval and it is a process.
Uniblue has a free scan utility that will pick this issue up.  then you have to purchase the software  - which will determine whether hppusg.exe is a security threat (virus) or a legitamate windows process.  Try Uniblue.com and see if that helps you.
I ran the free scan and it did pick up the file - so...
