I need a powershell script that will run on Windows server 2008 and monitor a text log file for a certain string "The data file is no longer open. Cannot continue.". It should check that log file once 15 minutes after each hour and 15 minutes before each hour/. When it finds that sting, it should terminate a running process called djengine.exe. (It is this process that doesn't error handle every well and when it can't see my accounting software, it hangs) The log file is located here: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\QuickBooks\qbsdklog,txt

Please log each instance of it running in a log file and whether or not it found the string and terminated the process. (the process will re-start itself at each hour and half-hour)
