A quick google for xpkey.com seems to show that it is a website for which someone has let their registration expire.

As Norton is flagging it up I would suggest that it was a rather dubious site which is best left strictly alone. The name would suggest that it gave a key for XP and these sites are notorious for being giving visitors a virus.

Perhaps someone else knows more than I do about this.

I really must check what I typed before posting... ignore the word 'being' in the second paragraph.
