Windows 7: Windows Script Host Error

Windows Script Host Error

Just recently I started getting an error when I boot up and I have no idea how to get rid of it. I have tried finding it in the task manager processes and stopping its startup, but I couldn't not find it there, and I also can't find it in the location specified by the error.

In the picture below is the error that pops up when I start up my computer (on right)

Anyone have a quick fix or know the steps necessary to remove this error?

To remove that error window (btw, the file is there. It has "hidden" and probably "system" attributes) download this Microsoft's Sysinternals utility.

Start it as Admin, go to its Logon tab, find that file and uncheck it.

And please check your system with antivirus to make sure there is no malware.
This looks like a hacktool of some sort.

If you do not have antivirus you can use free soft like
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Kaspersky Free Virus Scanner
