strange script being run by the agent

Windows 10 PCs, agent version 11.0.119

In a meeting today with our antivirus company, we were being shown some new features for white listing/black listing scripting.  One of the scripts that showed up (and was by default being blocked) was a powershell script named temp_script.ps1, and it was being executed out of C:\programdata\Quest\Kace\user.  Searching that directory yielded some log files but no script (so I'm assuming it's being generated on the fly as our AV isn't quarantining it, just not letting it run).  Can someone tell me what this script does?  I don't think it's something we created, as there's nothing in our scripting section of the K1100 with that name (and I don't think those scripted execute from that directory anyway).  Any thoughts?  Thanks.

Every single PowerShell command used to get inventory is written to a temp script first and then executed.
