It's not dangerous, it is something for pen tablets so you can write with them... Not dangerous

It's just bad designed and developed Microsoft utility responsible for using GDI objects by bunch of other programs

Consumes system resources and is pretty much unstoppable and not removable. Installed without user consent. As far as I'm concerned, it is malicious software.
  Goden  
My tablet computer loads it so the pen will write on the screen. Not a big deal. If you don't need pen services on your machine, uninstall it.

I have two of them running. one has my username on the side, and the other one doesn't. Also the other one doesn't have any description, like the other one.

Best practices for resolving wisptis issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with wisptis. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic 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 resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the wisptis.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
