wsqmcons.exe part of Windows Vista "Customer Experience Improvement Program"

When you installed Vista it should have asked you if you wanted to participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. You most likely agreed. This program collects and sends usage data to Microsoft.

Here is more info.

You should be able to disable this service with no problems.
