This piece of software belongs to the infamous SuperWeb family of software, and it can be easily downloaded from trendstab.com or the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/trendstab/fnjbpdhhdalaalamiieicdjiflbikbdk). Even though this software can be downloaded from such a source, it does not mean that it can be fully trusted.
