To whom it may concern:

I am just learning about the windows registry for XP Home Edition with service pack 3, and came across this entry in the registry under: HKEY_current_user/software/keyhole.com/keyholeclient. I have looked up this program on the internet and am more confused than when I began this adventure. There is a vast difference of opinion about keyhole.com, what it is, and what it does. I would like to know if this is a key logger program. If it is can I delete it from my registry? Also I have not been able to discover if this registry entry is associated with any other program. When I click on the folder icon for keyhole.com the description in the right pane of the window list name: default, type: REG_SZ, and data: (value not set), these are the same values shown for the folder keyholeclient. I have run a scan with Avast free, version 6.0.1125, virus definitions version 110608-0, and do not find any infections. I am looking forward to learning more about my computer and how it works. Below are the specifications of the computer I am currently using.

Take a look here: http://www.ip-adress.com/whois/keyhole.com

Which shows that Keyhole.com belongs to google. With that in mind note the following.
