DaemonProcess.exe - Unable to Locate Component

I have a user that has Window XP SP3.  They recently did a cleanup due to having some malware on the computer.  They also did a registry cleaner using CCleaner, even though I advised them not to.

Ran virus scan and all seems to be clear, however upon booting, I get the following error message when the desktop appears...

DaemonProcess.exe - Unable to Locate Component
This application has failed to start because QtWebKit4.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix the problem.

To be honest, I don't know where to start.  Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, and Norton Virus Scan says the PC is clean.

Can I get some suggestions.
