Question

Can not find script file

Okay, so this pop up (hourly popup) occurs every hour on the 30 minute. I downloaded a program (the program was ProcessExplorer) to identify what the program was and it was a wscript.exe file. I've looked online for a solution but every case I've seen does not even come close to the problem I have. The last part of the script file is "dala.txt" and searching online has provided nothing for this file code. When looking on this website, people have had problems with "lare.txt" among others. And whenever I use the Process Explorer and find the file location (file location highlighted in blue)
and right click on the properties, I can't do anything because I "don't have administrator permission" or it just says "access denied." On top of that, the popup only stays open for 5 minutes, and after the time has passed it doesn't even show up on the task manager anymore.
I have done the boot in safe mode option; it still popped up. I've done the create a file folder for this program; it still popped up. I've looked up how to solve it on this site many times, tried every option that I found, and none of them worked. The popup has honestly become a time keeper, because when it goes off we know it's hour 30 minutes. But we still can't find out how to get rid of it.
Please help, and thank you.

Clarification Request
Sounds like the remains of some infection.

DId you look at scheduled tasks?

Remember I can't tell you how unless i wrote how for 5 or more versions of Windows, but that's where I'd look next.

Scheduled tasks?

We are pretty sure that it is the remains of some virus. The file shows that it was created in January of 2015, and I have no idea what even made it get there. So I have clicked the start button, gone to scheduled tasks, and now what? What should I look for?

I'd look for tasks that run every hour.

Can't see which OS

"Since I can't see which OS, I can't ask you to dump content or how to much of anything. "
What all exactly do you need to see in order to help? I'm sorry that I was skimpy on the details, I'm new to this.
