''InstantShare'' is part of HP printing software.. Un-install your printer and reboot your computer.
Windows should pop-up a message found new hardware. Put your printer cd in and reinstall your software. Your problem was that the install of your printer didn't finish or was corrupted in some way..
Good luck and hope this helps.
Please rate this solution if it helped... Thank you..

There are several reasons why that file might corrupt, an add-on of some kind being the main suspect. Go to start > run > and type: iexplore-extoff and restart your computer. Check if it fixes the problem. If no go, do this one: Refresh all system files with sfc/scannow

If you are using spyware doctor in your computer, then that might be the reason. This is a common issue with spyware doctor. If you have that software, then try reloading it or uinstall and install it back. It should work.

One more thing, try to automate your computer's software maintenance by installing RadarSync. It works great with Windowx XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8.

I hope this helps!

In a situation like this it's most likely you have come across a virus, whether it be a trojen, worm, ect. Backup all your important files from your computer, documents, pictures, movies, music. Once this is done, reinstall your copy of Windows XP, and make sure you have a good anitvirus, malware, and spyware programs I recommend using either Avira Anti-Virus or AVG for virus protection, Malware Bytes for malware, and Super Anti Spyware for spyware, all of which can be obtained freely. You can find these programs on Just search for them, and you can download them from this site. Install your protection after installing XP, then run a scan on your backup data before you put it back onto the computer, just in case any of these files may be infected!

You may have other issues going on other than spyware or viruses that are infecting your computer. You might wish to try to save everything that you want to save to an external hard drive, and try re-installing XP onto your computer. You can also remove the motherboard HUB battery, located directly on the motherboard, leave it out for about 15 minutes or so, thereby erasing all of the motherboard settings and then putting it back in. Sometimes a computer may have too many programs that are starting up when XP starts, such as office, Adobe, or even your internet service. Try doing a disk clean-up, defragging the computer, removing programs that you do not use, and making sure that you are not infected by any malicious programs such as spyware or viruses, also. I myself like to save everything to my Western Digital 80GB external, and reinstal XP once a year. Gives my custom-build a nice clean system to start from, like a breath of fresh air. It does help. Make sure that everything is saved to an external hard drive first, then unplugging it to ensure that your computer cannot access it before you do these tasks. I hope that this helps. Good luck!!    yuva
