it starts with some adobe software, and is related to licensing purposes

On the Windows 2000/XP operating system the license manager is installed as a manually started, LocalSystem service named “Macromedia Licensing Service”. An additional process related to the license manager is called “~e5d141.tmp”. Two instances of this process are present when a Macromedia application is running.

Not taking up much resources. Remember that XP is smart when managing memory. If you need those 5mb RAM buy more sticks.

this file is called from a game executable or a safedisc (v2.9 on sim city4 deluxe) protected program that checks for authenticity of the disc or license. It is made by Macrovision and the program is called cleanup. It is the actuall program that is executing when you see the box pop up and say "Please insert the correct CD"
  Lukass  
It does slow things down. I've tried to get rid of it but so far I've failed. However, If you right click it in Task Manager and set priority to low, it's disruptive effect isn't as bad
   
Macromedia app of some sort, runs with a lot of maxis games and other apps
  ashna  
I determined the mysterious ~e5d141.tmp to be associated with the Macrovision SafeCast licensing manager, and employed by some popular programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and Adobe Photoshop CS.
  badger  
appeared when i had FS2004 running
  JimBob  
This file is pretty much pointless in its entirety... if you want to delete it you can... its usually gonna be in the temporary folder... its a hidden folder btw... after you delete it...it shouldn't come back...but if it does you can delete it again if you want...

As mentioned, it is part of a license check for some programs. It will NOT cause damage and will only slow your processing at startup license check while reading the CD.
  Dad_ems  
Starts with FS2004, Using Task Manager to disable also shuts down FS 2004. Causes FS2004 to use 98% of CPU, Therefore, FS2004 crashes.

  MasMarco  
just installed simcity 4 and thnk i got it with that. anyway it makes WoW imposible to play due insane fps lag. deleted it.
  Line  
It is a Macrovision process. Using Windows XP it is trigered by AutoCAD 2004, and running in the C:\Windows\Temp folder. It first appeared after a changing of the size of the C partition. It is probably associated with licencing control. It is running while Autocad is used. The process has disapeared by itself after 1 or 2 weeks. Probably not dangerous.

Best practices for resolving ~e5d141 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with ~e5d141. 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.

To help you analyze the ~e5d141.tmp process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: ASecurity Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
