    My Pc Start programmes update shows a ISUSPM.exe updater.
    Is this legal or malicious?
    I have had Regseeker search for all register keys and deleted them, but stored in a quarantaine folder.
    I can't find this malware in the usual folders

    Purpose of this file:
    This is a program which is from a company called Macrovision. The actual disk location is shown below, always verify the location to make sure it is not spware, as the file should be located as shown. The purpose of this program is to check for the latest updates from Macrovision.

    What is the isuspm.exe location, where is it stored on my computer?
    This file will be found on your hard drive at C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\UPDATE~1\ISUSPM.exe

    That's legit, it's the InstallShield update program. InstallShield is used to by some applications to run the install process. It's one of those startup programs that isn't really neccessary.

    isuspm.exe is a process that belongs InstallShield from Macrovision. The process automatically checks for the latest updates online. By removing this process you will not get informed about the latest updates for InstallShield.

    so what? :)
