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.

Re: disk installation

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?

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.

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

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:
