Winpatrol query

I have just installed Winpatrol and, having run it, I was curious about an entry under the "IE Helpers" tab. The item is Research. It is an extension and is located at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions.

Does anyone know what this item does and if it is safe to keep it on my machine?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

johnnyrocker,
Thanks for the reply. I had tried Google using "extensions"+"research" but it revealed very little. From your link I get the impression that the HKLM\........ location is where a lot of malware hides. Perhaps I'm missing something obvious, but I still couldn't trace anything on "Research".
