Windows 10 suspicious registry entry : windoss

Poking around in the Windows 10 registry I found:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windoss
containing HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windoss\CurrentVersion with a single entry Name = Default, Type = REG_SZ and Data = (value not set).
also
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windoss\CurrentVersion\SearchSettings with two entries
first is Name = Default, Type = REG_SZ and Data = (value not set).,

second is Name = SafeSearchMode, Type = REG_DWORD, Data = 0x00000001 (1).

Anyone have any idea what this is - it looks like a classic trying to hide with a name that won't be noticed (windoss -vs- windows). Did a google search for windoss and everything is redirected to windows so I haven't come across anything so far.

Yes and I am a noob FYI lol
