LogMeIn Guardian. Task whose sole purpose is to gather detailed information should a LogMeIn crash occur. It provides LogMeIn Inc with diagnostic information which enables them to analyze what caused the crash and what the solution may be. It is similar to the "Would you like to send this report to Microsoft ?" error reporting feature of Windows. This task will often appear twice on the Tasks tab.
