This is presumably a leftover reference to some 'Conduit' malware that was installed on your system and may have been removed by your anti-virus software. To fix the problem:

• Open the Windows Control Panel
• Open Administrative Tools
• Open Task Scheduler
• Click on 'Task Scheduler Library' and scroll down to 'BackgroundContainer'
• Right click on the 'BackgroundContainer' entry, then click 'Delete' on the pop-up.
• Close all windows and reboot your computer.

Fixmyregsistry is claimed to be a registry optimizer. See: FixMyRegistry Free Download. IMHO, such tools are dangerous in the hands of the casual user and the best solution is to uninstall it via the Windows Control Panel.
