Is this bad?

Every time I start up my computer I get this command prompt telling me this: 8b824d270162f3626cb367b0d218ac46.png

Establish a Clean boot, check for infection, then System File integrity, then the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Go through the list in Control Panel>Programs and Features to uninstall any programs you don't recognize or know for sure you installed and use. If in doubt open the program in All Programs and look at it to decide for sure or later.

Then establish a Clean Boot from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7, run the free versions Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware full scans declining each one's Trial version. Then run SFC /SCANNOW Command to see if System files were compromised.

It's possibly "Search.conduit.com virus/malware/ adware" ... follow both of these instructions:

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.

Using AdwCleaner v3: Scan & Clean:
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool again.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin to scan your computer like it did before.
  • After the scan has finished...
  • This time, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.
