It's a leftover file or something, from uninstall, and I can't get rid of it booting up.
its a software by Uniblue.

It's left over from the trial version of SpeedUpMyPC. After uniinstall it leaves the C:\programfiles\uniblue directory populated with a few files including speedupmypc.exe. I deleted this folder and the annoying popup at start up doesn't occur anymore.
My friend installed it on my computer, and then the computer got really slow, and acted strangely. I got rid of it, and now it's better.
that program wants me to uninstall my antivirus before installing it
