have you removed malware with a scanner rcently?
it sounds like the system is trying to run something that was removed.
check your startup and remove the entry for that file (msconfig>startup tab)
or check in the Windows Defender startup settings.

Hi,

Well, that's probably a good thing as the file is likely malware. It's not
found on any listings of operating system or common program files that I can
locate. It likely means that your antimalware programs did about half the
job. They identified and removed the malicious file, but not the string that
loaded it. I would download autoruns from the link below and use it to find
and remove the offending entry:
