    disk installation

    When I turn on my computer I get a pop up box that tell me to insert CD for
    Instantsharedevices.msi. It will not let me close and I do not have a disk
    for this. It just keeps on trying to install. How do I get rid of this or
    find this device.

    That is a hard one;)

    I guess it is related to HP software you might have done a to thorough
    cleanup or deleted a file, reinstall your HP software and see if that will
    solve the problem?

    If you do not have any HP software installed than you can let us know as
    well.

    Let us know if it solved your problem?

    READ THIS FOR A FIX TO HP TOTAL CARE ADVISOR WINDOWS VISTA

    First: Goto system restore and click on the advance tab and at the bottom
    of the screen click on create system retore point, Name the point and then
    you may begin when the point is finished being created.

    STEP ONE: UNINSTALL HP TOTAL CARE ADVISOR

    STEP TWO: GOTO http://www.mediafire.com/?ddvjyk5gzne

    DOWNLOAD AND SAVE FILE hp_total_care_advisor.rar (11.41MB) TO DESKTOP

    STEP THREE: GOTO http://h30155.www3.hp.com/helpandsupport/

    DOWNLOAD FILE AND SAVE TO DESKTOP

    THEN RUN FILE sp36082.exe(5.61 MB)

    SELECT YES TO OVERWRITE ALL FILES (THIS IS THE LIBRARY FILES NOT THE PROGRAM
    FILES)

    STEP FOUR: GOTO http://www.filehippo.com

    in the searchbar @ filehippo.com [type] winrar

    download and save WinRAR 3.70
    RARLab - 1.15MB (Shareware) to desktop

    Step Five:go to explore and Program Files folder, and open folder
    Hewlet-Packard, and delete the subfolder HP ADVISOR

    file hp_total_care_advisor.rar you saved on your desktop

    Step Seven: your HP TOTAL CARE ADVISOR should be installed and have created
    a new subfolder HP Advisor in the HEWLETT-PACKARD Program Files folder,

    Step Eight: Go to the application HP Advisor file in the newly created HP
    Advisor Subfolder create a shortcut
    to desktop for the application and then run the application.

    Everything should be fine from there on out and it is your option to place
    the application to run on startup or not in your msconfig settings, I choose
    not so that I have the additional RAM available to run the system faster and
    the application as needed instead of on startup.

    Step Nine: After evrything is running as it should and all your setting are
    as you need them and would like them, Then run System restore again and
    chose
    the advanced tab and select to Create a new Restore point and Name it
    After Instal Setup of "_______" previous named point afterward and again to
    secure your system integrity as you did in the begining.

    Hi Realcstmoi, I am a new guy in town, I am facing the same problem about
    InstantShareDevice thing, but my computer is a WindowsXP, do you have a
    repair solution for my problem?

    Sorry, I forgot to tell you that I can't turn my computer off, the only way to do
    it is unpluging the cord from the wall.

    Thank you for trying to help me out. This is the situation: While trying to install a new printer HP Deskjet F4280 All in one, in the middle of
    the installation I got a pop up box showing "InstantShareDevices" The feature you are trying to install is on a CD-Rom or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the InstantShareDevices'disk and click OK. It will not let me close and I do not have the disk for this. It just keeps on trying to install. How do I get rid of this or find this device? and the big problem is that at the end do not let me turn off the computer. The system is WindowsXP and the service pack is 1. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    You're posting to a thread which has expired from Microsoft's servers, so most
    of us won't be able to see the post you are replying to. Please start a new
    thread and describe what your problem is, including your operating system (XP)
    and which service pack you have installed.

    Re: disk installation

    If you only have service pack 1, and the machine has an internet connection, it
    is very probably infected with malware and will need a clean install (a repair
    installation will not help). More details below.

    The problem with the HP software may be due to an infection, or it may simply
    require service pack 2 or 3 to be installed, or it could be a problem with their
    software. HP support might be able to help, although even if you can fix this
    problem I would recommend a clean install.

    the procedure for a clean install:

    "Backup your personal data (none of which may be 100% trustworthy), then do a
    format & clean install of Windows. Please note that a Repair Install (AKA
    in-place upgrade) will NOT fix this!

    cf. http://michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html#steps

    After the clean install, you'll have the equivalent of a "new computer" so take
    care of everything on the following page before otherwise connecting the machine
    to the internet or a network and before using a USB key that isn't brand-new or
    hasn't been freshly formatted:
