Windows 7: INNOSetup has installed itself as an auto start program - What is it?

INNOSetup has installed itself as an auto start program - What is it?

Hello,
I am currently having problems getting Malwarebytes AntiMalware to function as I want it to and so a possible fix was to uninstall and reinstall. I did this and know CCleaner shows an InnoSetup program that also installed itself as autostart. I've found it is some old type of program installer, but I've never had it, and don't want it. Can anyone shed any light on this program? Thanks
Glenn

Do you program/compile/build software on this machine (or is this a used machine from someone else who might have)? InnoSetup is used for such things.

Hello FliGi7,
No I don't do any of those things! I am going to kill it and see what happens!!
Thank you!

You might want to uninstall it instead of just trying to remove it from startup.
