I take it this is something new perhaps with the stars 7 version?
I'm sure its just a seperate running application that is required with the new version, probably a type of 3rd party utility that its using to interact with additional servers maybe but thats just a quick off the top guess at this point since I havn't used the new version of stars.
Probably something you could google to find out if its a generic utility maybe, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
and they may be able to provide specifics or most likely will just state its part of the new stars application.
Also I'm sure if anyone else around the forum has any ideas they will be able to shed some light but don't imagine many people will know exactly its purpose for being part of the new stars app.
Not sure if the vip rep may have any thoughts to provide or if would point you to contact support, this thread:
