Default InStallShield

Hey all,

Not sure what happened or how, but the last few days I keep getting a pop-up fromj Zone Alarm asking whether to allow InStallShield Update to access the internet. I keep denying, but it keeps popping back up. Last night I ran End-It-All before I went online to race and no problems. This morning I ran End-It-All again, it showed it closed the update program, but it popped up and kicked me back to desktop (lucky I was just practicing...LOL)

In my Control Panel, there is a folder called Program Update, but I see no place to delete it. I tried opening it, but it would not full open. You could only see the top 1/8 of it.

I found InStallShield from Macrovision, but that has been installed since 2005.

This is the name of the exe: isuspm.exe. When I searched, I found 3 files, but no uninstall.

Please, how do I get rid of this thing? If I have to, I can do a System Restore, but hopefully something easier.

Thanks

PTC_Rich

Here is a link that explains what the .exe file is and what it does.
http://www.what-is-exe.com/filenames/isuspm-exe.html

It doesn't look like it is is any type of spyware, or adware, or a virus. It appears to just be the install shield executable file. I would do a back up and then try updating it.
