Private registration. In the Bahamas.
Snagged me off a Google image search and popped up offer of Windows Secure Kit 2012 which had 'found' "critical process activity" and declared it would scan system files, ok"
I grabbed screen and left. Lot of giberrish after keyonlinecup.com in header.
Anybody want the screenshot?

I googled Windows Secure Kit 2012 and this seems to be a well known rogue program. This links says it was being spread by Yahoo's ad network. There are screenshots and other info.

If you think your computer got infected, follow the instruction in the spyware removal help section and post your logs.

Thanks, suzy, but I think I am alright.
I didn't let it do anything.

This is the second time though that I have been grabbed off a google image search by something like this. Different website. Different name for the phoney windows software.

Also 3rd time grabbed off a google search of any kind for something like this.

I just make screenshots and look them up on netsol's whois.
