Hey guys!

I just wanted to make a simple Python Keylogger to know whether some on is fiddling with my laptop while I'm away or not...also, I want it to write the keys pressed to a file...

Oh, and, do to this is pyHook easier or Threading? And, BTW, what is threading for?

Thanks in advance guys and gals!

pyHook is easier. Threading is much different. For an explanation of threading see http://www.devshed.com/c/a/Python/Basic-Threading-in-Python/

Threading is for running multiple things at once. Such as having a thread run to update a GUI while another performs some sort of data manipulation. So, threading is much different than what you're after.
