Windows 7: Weird small screen at boot, malware related?

Weird small screen at boot, malware related?

Hey everybody,

I've been getting this weird little window at boot it starts up all the way in the bottom corner (I moved it in the picture) so you don't really notice it at first.
I can easily close it by hitting alt+f4 and I can drag it around anywhere but it still bothers me.

MBAM doesn't find anything, Comodo doesn't find anything so I assume it's nothing really harmful but still, it's weird...

I can't find anything in the startup file list either so that's why it bothers me I think... Maybe this looks familiar to someone,

I can also post a full Hijackthis log and a full running processes log from Process hacker or something.
It's the little grey thing in the corner, the arrow and red border are obviously made by me to make it clearer where to look :P

No idea, I can't boot into safe mode because my comp is connected with a HDMI cable (which doesn't work in safe mode) and the only monitor I have has a VGA output while my comp only has DVI-I inputs and I lack a converter :P.

Nothing showed up when booted in clean mode. I've been waiting a while now in normal mode but it looks like it isn't showing up right now either *shrugs* no idea what it is/was.

It continues to show up every time I boot. I turned off some services I don't really need manually already (might as well to speed things up a bit ) but it just keeps showing up and I can't seem to link it to a running program that shuts down in my process manager (Process Hacker).

Yep I scanned with malwarebytes and Comodo, I'm currently running ESETs online scanner but so far it only found a couple of FP's (which I know are FP's because either I wrote them or someone I know did and makes the scanner go haywire lol).

I could post a hijackthis log once this is done? Maybe that'll help identify it?
