This is something that is specific to HP machines. Other people report similar problems after installing SP2 and other MS updates.

I think you will have to speak to HP to find out what it does and why there is a problem.

You can stop it from loading by going to Start - Run; type in msconfig and click OK. Go to the Startup tab and remove the tick next to the reference for this program. After reboot it should not happen again.
