It's the Windows WMI service exe housing file:

"Windows Management Instrumentation provides a standard Windows programming method of accessing system information, performance information, event monitors, and application monitors. Thus, for instance, if you wanted to write a product which detailed which hard disks your PC has, their capacity, manufacturer, and other miscellaneous information, you could use WMI scripting to retrieve the information from your PC. In fact you could use WMI for something as simple as finding how much spare hard disk space you have. WMI is an essential component of Windows from Windows Millennium Edition and Windows 2000 onward."

What we really need to know is the exact and complete text of the error message you're getting.

Is the file reported missing, or is it something else?

Welcome to TSG!
Beyond Tonys fine explaination of "Windows Management Instrumentation" (WMI) and its use there have been reports of excessive CPU cycles while PCStores is running. I am sure Tony will explain further when you respond to what the root problem is that prompted your question.
