Isuspm.exe is a process used by InstallShield Update Manager from Macrovision. Once it has been installed, it automatically checks for updates online and asks if you want to install them. Although it is not a malicious process, it can get annoying because it displays frequent pop-ups asking if you want to update. By removing it, you will not get the informed updates for InstallShield. If you do not use InstallShield products, removing it is very safe and won’t interfere with any system processes.
