It's not dangerous, it is something for pen tablets so you can write with them... Not dangerous
It's just bad designed and developed Microsoft utility responsible for using GDI objects by bunch of other programs
Consumes system resources and is pretty much unstoppable and not removable. Installed without user consent. As far as I'm concerned, it is malicious software.
My tablet computer loads it so the pen will write on the screen. Not a big deal. If you don't need pen services on your machine, uninstall it.
I have two of them running. one has my username on the side, and the other one doesn't. Also the other one doesn't have any description, like the other one.
