[XPHome] Strange window pops up on startup?

I just did a series of windows updates on my Netbook running Windows XP Home. I get the following window pop up whenever I start any client. Is it some form of malware trying to install itself or is it the result of one of the windows updates that I downloaded? Your assistance would be appreciated. The question is if it is malware how would I get rid of it?

It's not likely to be the result of a Windows update. More likely some crapplication that the Netbook vendor installed.

It looks like you've got a 'runas' command somewhere in your set of startup commands. Use msconfig to look for it.
