ISUSPM.EXE suddenly hogging cpu

Posted: 01-23-2009, 12:44 PM
Within the last few days I find this isuspm.exe hogging my cpu,
haven't noticed it happening before. I see it's related to autoupdater
but am also wary of self-renaming malware.

I did a scan with freshly updated Bitdefender, it found nothing.

I did a system search and find isuspm.exe manifest and isuspm.exe
under InstallShield\UpdateService and also an isuspm.exe with a
different extension ending in .pf under C:\Windows\prefetch.

Running XP Home SP2

Any idea why this would suddenly be exhibiting this behavior?

Thanks for all input
