  • This was malware. It was removed by your AntiVirus Scanner, but the registry entries are still present to start the malware at startup.

    Start regedit.exe and search (F3 or CTRL+F) for winult32.rom and delete all entries you find.

    To be safe, make a full scan with an AntiVirus Scanner like Microsoft Security Essentials and also scan your PC with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware .
