Default Registry entry "C07ft5Y" is in HKEY Local Machine. What is it?

A Google search says that it's related to TurboTax, but I've never owned a copy of that software. Spybot shows nothing on the system. What is this entry?

it's used by C_DILLA, a software copy protection system.

I used Google. I did see C-dilla mentioned, and the word "spyware" used at the same time. Spybot showed nothing though; I just wondered if the entry was a leftover then, or if it's still on the system.
I'll have to see what else might use C-Dilla.

As far as I know, it is used by SafeDisc. The default value for that key on my machince is "SafeDisc RefCount"

you're not the only one... but I'm not that thorough . Usually it's more of a check to make sure I recognize the apps.

Yeah, usually I go into the registry to manually remove entries from crappy uninstallers, or botched installs, or to remove pesky things from the Run sections.

i occasionally go wondering through the registry. came across that and wondered what da hell it was as well. thanks! this finally put my paranoid mind to rest. only reason i didn't delete it was because i saw the same registry key in my spare rig also running winXP. thought since they both have it, prolly came with XP.
