    That is display control manager for your ATI video onboard. You will need it to have all functions as said in the link:

    If your video display works just fine, and you dont need anything else, then turn off automatic update.

    Like the nvidia cards we have the Nvidia display panel, I find it very good to use will save you from always having to do the rightclicking the desktop then navigating to your video card settings if you need to change something.
    it is an easy access to your display and video settings colour manager and display res.And many other features.
