    think you will have picked that up in some shareware program

    you can uninstall it but you may get a warning saying that the program may not function correctly with out it

    see how it goes

    In short it's an IE Plugin which lets you access unofficial domain names and could be considered spyware/security risk and should be and can be safely removed.
