What is khalmnpr.exe?
Khalmnpr.exe, or the Kernel and Hardware Abstraction Layer Main Process, is part of the Logitech SetPoint software that is installed with Logitech keyboard and mouse drivers. Its purpose is to allow configuration of the many advanced features found on Logitech keyboards, mice, and other products. The following is a screenshot of the SetPoint software, of which this process is a significant part:

This process is not essential to the operation of the system and can safely be disabled. Be aware that by killing this, you will be unable to take advantage of the features that you configured in the SetPoint software. If you wish to permanently get rid of the executable and the associated features, you should uninstall the SetPoint software.

As you can see in the above screenshot, khalmnpr.exe typically runs as the current user (in this case, Mike). A process with this name that is running as another user may be but is not necessarily indicative of a malware infection.

Dangers of khalmnpr
As this is an executable that is found on many systems with Logitech peripherals, it is possible for virus writers and spyware vendors to disguise their malware as the genuine one.

Some malicious files may have the same name but be stored somewhere other than in %SystemRoot%\System32. Other malware may use a name that appears similar to it but with slight differences in spelling or with appended digits. While there are currently no known viruses, trojans, or adware applications that disguise themselves as this process, you should look out for this file in an incorrect location or with a slightly different name.

There is typically only one instance of this process running at a given time on a system. The presence of multiple instances may be an indicator of a malware infection.
