I wrote the application. :-) It's a core component of the Ringo Companion/Sideshow, the Monster Companion, and the Military.com IE toolbar. It was created by Monster Worldwide, the parent of Monster.com and the previously mentioned companies/websites. If you don't want the application that uses the Hub.exe process, you can uninstall the program using the Control Panel with no ill effects.

I wrote it, and it is part of several user-installable applications - the Ringo Companion (Uploader, Screensaver or Sideshow), the Monster Companion, the Tickle Companion, or the Military.com Toolbar. It is the core app for these programs, and in addition provides upgrades, synchronization (ie photo download) and other timely services. It can be uninstalled with the application that it came as part of.
