Welcome to Seven Forums rstandi. Try running the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If no help, next time it happens, open the Event Viewer and see if you can find an error relating to Power Shell, and copy the full error info here

When do you get this error? Are you actually using Power Shell? Have any scripts running? Happens at boot? Randomly? Anything common to when it happens? A Guy

It's random and pops up all the time. Mostly notice it when using Internet explorer.

I'll post to our gurus, but I'd run some scans to check for malware, or virus. They can often use powershell to run scripts.

Malwarebytes free
