FourEngine.exe is a utility that comes with Asus computers. It is an EPU that helps regulate power consumption, thereby optimizing your PC to use less power. It's an environmentally-friendly application that I don't recommend uninstalling.

This application is the part of the 'ASUS EPU-4 ENGINE' - It's a CPU/Hardware monitor included with various ASUS motherboards. Usually located in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\EPU-4 Engine' or similar directory. Not harmful.

Part of the Asus motherboard EPU-4 driver. Safe.
I installed it with my ASUS P7P55D-E LX motherboard. Comes with the ASUS EPU-4 Engine, which is used for power management. I tried to make my PC less noisy by enabling it, but my case fans make my PC noisy anyway. Use it, if you want to save some electricity costs.

I believe it might have something to do with quad-core CPU's, it was there the moment I first booted my PC.
