look on google for cc registery cleaner or just go here
other than that, it doesnt really cause an actual issue with windows running, and it might need a format to fix it.
It usually means one program you have installed has accidently made a long entry into your add/remove.
As for your other printer issue, im still working on that.
Are you able to get the printer to actually work on the #1 pc its connected to before you share it?

ive done reg cleaner, reg mechanic, and cc registry cleaner...
I like cc the best, makes easy backups and finds a lot of crap .
If it really annoys the hello out of you and the registry programs dont fix the add/remove thing, you can try removing the program listen right above the blackness, and remove the program right below the blackness, then see if that fixes it, if it does, then reinstall the programs...
( unless you are screwed and like the program above is win xp sp2 or something then forget it )
its just annoying and a lil messup of windows, but it wont harm your performance or the way it runs in general.

Here's one generic solution to the problem. (You'll have to do a little work here)
1. Start the registry editor
2. Select [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE]-[SOFTWARE]-[MICROSOFT]-[WINDOWS]-[Uninstall]
3. Back up the Uninstall branch (step 2) by exporting it to your desktop
4. Open the Add/Remove programs control applet. Note the last good display name in your Add/Remove program List. Then close the control panel applet.
5. Go back to the registry editor. Find the program uninstall key from step 4 above in the registry. (Using only the branch in step 2) Select the NEXT uninstall key.
6. Delete the uninstall keys one at a time until you find the offending uninstallation routine. After each deletion, open the Add/Remove programs applet and look at the display to see if it is fixed. Remember to CLOSE the Add/Remove program window before deleting the next key.
7. When you find the correct key, make a note of it.
8. Your problem is not fixed if you deleted some GOOD registry entries. At this point you MAY have deleted BOTH GOOD and BAD registry entries, depending on how lucky you were.
9. The next step explains how to restore the registry to it's prior state.
10. Close the registry editor. Right click on the file you saved in step 3. Select Merge.
11. Your registry is now back to where it was ORIGINALLY.
12. Now open your registry editor and select the key from step 7, and delete it. Your problem should now be fixed and all good entries intact.

go>start>run and type in cmd and hit enter. Now type in the following REGSVR32 APPWIZ.CPL
and hit enter on your keyboard. This should reset those registry entries
