That application is related to your HP software suite, however it is not needed for your printer to function properly. Most printers these days comes with additional software to monitor ink level, print management, etc. but in most cases, everything you need to print is already built into Windows XP.
I would disable this program from starting up by using the following procedure:
1. Click Start, and Select "Run".
2. Type in MSCONFIG in the run command line.
3. Select the Startup Tab.
4. Look for the application in question and uncheck the box. The lists all applications that startup automatically. You may want to disable anything you don't want to automatically startup each time you boot up Microsoft Windows XP.
