ParetoLogic is a data recovery program.
They also provide utility software, driver updates, and an anti-virus program.

http://www.paretologic.com/products/index.aspx

I'm thinking one of their products was at one time installed then uninstalled. This isn't malware, a virus, or any other bad thing. It's likely trying to run a scheduled update of something.
To get rid of it, go to Control Panel.
Open up Scheduled Tasks.
Find the entry for ParetoLogic Registration and delete it.
To delete, right click on the entry, then choose Delete.

You are welcome. I'm glad there's one less thing to get on your nerves.
