Could not install older programs/games (Red Alert 2 would give error in setup.exe) without starting this service in winxp - starting the windows installer service may be necessary as well

Do not rember installing it!
Install Driver Module, part of InstallShield. It should only appear when you are installing a new piece of software.
Part of installer service. Should only run when installing new software, but may be set to automatic startup after installation of iTunes 5. Setting service to manual should correct this with no outstanding issues.

it's installed without your consent when you want to play a copyrighted CD or DVD.
I have installed many of windows OS, but very rare is to see IdriwerT.exe in processes after clean instalaton. I don't like processes whitch can not be removed with "hijack this", and I have bad experience in cases when it belongs to "Macrovision".
Installed when I loaded "Book Avis" program add-on to MS Outlook 2003
It´s a process part of InstallShield. About resource use, it only takes between 15 and 24 kb from memory. Its not harmful at all.
Was installed by intel Modem Driver
Started by "Services and Controller app(services.exe)", Company=Macrovision Corp, CopyRight=2005 Macrovision, Product associated with "InstallShield" and it's located in "#C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Driver\11\Intell 32\

It appeared on my Tdssantirootkiller on Kaspersky and I kept quarantining it to no avail.
WinPatrol just announced that this service wanted to start at every boot. I'd never seen this notification prior to the most recent iTunes update.

Best practices for resolving IDriverT issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with IDriverT. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
