    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
