Does the Windows Virtual (On-Screen) Keyboard have any protection from Keyloggers/ing?

Does the Windows Virtual (On-Screen) Keyboard have any protection from Keyloggers/ing, for example, If a computer has been infected with Keylogging Software, would the on-screen keyboard make any difference when entering Passwords e.t.c by preventing the Keylogger from retreiving the Keystrokes?

Thanks In Advance to all who reply!!!

Hi,

A Key logger records the keys struck on a keyboard, when one uses the onscreen keyboard there is no activity on the keyboard and hence the activity cannot be recorded..
