What is googletalk.exe?

Part of Google Talk by Google

What is it?

Google Talk is an instant messaging service that provides both text and voice communication. The instant messaging service is colloquially known as "gchat" to its users, although Google does not endorse this name. Google Talk is also the name of the client applications offered by Google to access the service.
Description of googletalk.exe from Google
Google Talk, a downloadable chat application by Google. Since sometimes reading "lol" doesn't deliver the same punch as actually hearing your friend laugh at your jokes, you can now use voice and video capabilities in your Gmail, iGoogle and orkut chat. From within these services, you can have an actual conversation with someone (seriously, out loud), or even chat face to face over video.
