It is a vital component of the Seven Transformation Pack, while not vital to your computer, it is vital to the program and should not be deleted, unless you know that you do not/no longer have this program.
Neither needed or not needed, it's part of the windows transformation program to make xp or vista appear as windows 7, but a long time has gone by since it was created and the team have revised their program. So should you have updated you can remove the file.
