Wisptis.exe is related to input devices, specifically a pen or mouse.  Please see the following link for removal steps or a script that can do this automatically.  

As always, backup & proceed w/ caution, editing the registry is done at your own risk.

Wisptis.exe can cause problems with your pointer, for example, switch on windows min/max animations and try to move the mouse while minimizing a window with wisptis.exe running. The mouse pointer is freeze for a milisecond

The best solution for now is replace c:\windows\system32\wisptis.exe for an empty exe or null file. Easily can be done in VB for example, I dont know if a empty renamed .txt file do the work. However you can lose some functions, msn messenger handwriting tab does not work, etc..
