    Has every aspect of being minor generic malware. Run Spybot.

    Could also be a software that you did not uninstall correctly. Try to remember things you removed recently.

    Hmm - I've not had this but I've tried a Google for 'sipo.bpo' - found nothing, however I HAVE found something about 'sipo.com' (See here)

    Have you installed anything recently ?? like a toolbar or something

    If so it could be you've been infected with some Malware

    Have you run any spyware/Malware (like Spybot - search & destroy/Adaware/Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware) software to check ??

    It's probably an old piece of spyware or virus that's been removed, one of the kind that randomly generate .dll's with different names so it's harder to look up fixes. Either manually clean your startup registry keys or use a program like Hijack This if malwarebytes doesn't fix it.
