If that was there from the very beginning and not something that hitched a ride with an app (all reputable and with some basic research done first - nothing installed sight-unseen from devs I've never heard of), then I will be VERY disappointed in Kobo. No, not disappointed - VERY pissed. [shown as version 4.0.4-424 and a size of 144KB]
I've been using Apex Launcher. It's working very well for me.

I have the Kobo tracking in the all apps list, but not as a running process. I also have that other weird app showing in the all apps list. I have disabled it for now. If everything seems fine I will leave it disabled. :-)
