The isuspm.exe is not required at startup, so if you want you can remove it from the startup list.
To do this I would suggest using Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel to remove it from the startup list.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks for the suggestion. I got through the install process for CPL, to the "finished" popup, but nothing runs automatically, and got to the "Startup Control Panel 2.8 by Mike Lin" popup. Can't find very many programs listed in either user or common lists, and no ISUCPM in either list. Any more detailed operating instructions for Startup CPL anywhere? I found the Michael Lin website and a screen for Startup Control Panel. The note indicates only up to XP compatibility. Do you know that it should work for W7?
What I had done manually was going in thru MSCONFIG command to the system configuration / startup tab, unchecking ISUSPM, and clicking APPLY. Still shows up as unchecked after restarts, but still shows up in the process list.

It is a known pain. Here's the BC identification of it.
As you can see it is configured to run from a registry setting (or possibly several). So removing it could take several attempts from different locations. Rather than me typing it all out for you there is a nice easy tutorial for you to follow here. You may find that you do need to follow method 4 (manually editing the registry), so be sure to create a restore point before you start messing with your registry.

Thanks to all for the suggestions. I've managed to set Flexnet Common Software Update Manager scans to manual, and ISUSPM seems to be behaving itself, as far as memory usage is concerned. I did note that just opening up the program results in the settings being changed back to automatic, and some memory was tied up. I see from the suggestions made that there are other things I could do, but I think I'll hold off on them for now. Thanks again.
