Well XP or Vista it looks like something Malware or a browser hijack
might leave behind. I'd say this is also an IE question and you should
try looking at some REPUTABLE security software - which I've lost track
of a bit so ask around. Do NOT just go install something that claims to
remove spyware without asking in these groups because often the darned
things are as bad or worse than you already have.
There seems to be a real website related to printers called something
similar, could be a partial install that failed is simply looking for
something related to the product you were installing so don't panic,
just looks around for similar symptoms.
