Prevx identifies this as malware "trojan systemposer".
You can use Autoruns to try and find the file causing this popup at startup or try to remove it with the programs below. As there is likely other malware on your computer suggest you use the programs, too.

Install Super Antispyware free. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
