Seems like it is the remains of a virus or part of a virus.

Check your anti-virus logs for messages or if you haven't done so recently run your anti-virus.

Consider running Malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/ as well.

Do that and check there is no virus running.

Then at the command line type

msconfig

In the Services and Startup tabs look for izupezupe.dll

If you find it there disable it.

that's a virus............... and the virus has been removed.

delete the key that contain it, it should be under
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
[HKEY_CURRENT_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
AND / OR
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]

Get a copy of Autoruns from Microsoft and search for the izupezupe.dll

http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/Autoruns.zip

Remove it once found, or else if you face any difficulty working with the autoruns then you could just save the autorun entries of you system and post it here. To save the autorun entries do the following:

Click --> File --> Save.

Name the file "filename.arn" (filename could be any name)

You might want to zip the arn file before posting it here for further analysis.
