An icon for the HP Share-the-web-Upload Folder is on my desktop. I have heard different stories about this program, even stories that attempts at removal may damage the machine. I do use an HP Scanner, but that is the only other peripheral I have that is made by HP.

Recent info from MS tends to indicate that this folder caused the recent problems with an urgent security update. It did for me, as I have one program that lost it's "To:" address line.

Is there danger, if any, in attempting removal of this program? Are there specific instructions for removal?
Repercussions, if any?

It's OK to remove it. Uninstall it from Add or Remove programs in Control Panel. This is standard with all HP printer driver installs.
