I am cleaning up my pc using add or remove programs and I have found InstaFinderK about which I know nothing. A web search does not turn up a good description. Does anyone here know what it does and why I might need it or not? Thank you for your assistance.

It is not used by windows AT ALL. Sounds like adware or spyware to me... Kill it.
