This program is part of the mouse driver package from Logitech Corporation for its pointing products. It is responsible for hooking (interfacing) with various games in order to permit the drivers to enable game-specific settings (such as programmable function keys).

Ok, before guessing I directly asked logitech. They said (which makes perfectly sense) that its a .dll that is loaded with every app, to hook into the app and change the mouse etc. settings according to the app. you can choose that in the setpoint software as game profiles. You can even safely delete this file (sometimes setpoint will complain then).
