I would like to know if anyone can tell me what this is, the last few mornings when I log on to my computer Spybot gives me a message that an important registry entry has been changed. it reads.
Category: System Startup global entry
Change: Value Deleted
Entry: InstallShieldSetup
Old Data: c:\progra~1\instal~1\{c849e~1\setup.exe -reboot:\progra~1\instal~1\ \{c849e~1\reboot.ini -10x9
I have been denying change becuase I'm not sure what it is or what cause the change.
Thanks for any help.

If malware was trying to infect your computer right before teatimer warned of the change then you should deny, if your security programs were trying to remove malware then you should allow change.

Confusing to say the least

Let's get a second opinion, leave teatimer running but just do a scan, don't let MBAM change anything at first

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.34) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Thanks for the info, the MBAM log is below. I did notice that that same file is in my CCleaner startup items with the following information.
Enabled: Yes
Key: HKLM:RunOnce
Program: InstallShieldSetup
File: c:\progra~1\instal~1\{c849e~1\setup.exe -reboot:\progra~1\instal~1\ \{c849e~1\reboot.ini -10x9

Thanks again.

Did you install any legitimate software that required a reboot?

Yes I installed a monthly update that required a reboot and I rebooted at that time. I did not suspect that because I update every month and have never experienced that Spybot message before. Do you think that might be the cause?
