It's not too severe
PUP (Possibly Unwanted Program)

As posted on PC Advisor site

According to freelists.org *"It is a tool to be used by software publishers and distributors of "free" software and is intended to increase the profits of their "free" distributions"*

InstallBrain appears to be the chosen installer of a software program that you have installed. The updater service seems to be to send info back to the program makers about your use of the software (?)
