|I'm thinking it may be used for the Google updater service. I disabled this add-on in hopes of preventing Google from updating my toolbar to any updated toolbar versions that I do not want. I've been battling the Google updater for weeks trying to keep it from updating from v4 to v5. V5 sucks and Google doesn't care if you don't want it or not, they will force it on you anyway.
