Can I stop logging the history for a specific task in Server 2008?

Greetings -

Is it possible to turn off logging for a particular task in Windows Server 2008?  I don't see a way to disable logging for a task.

I have a task that runs very often, as in every 5 minutes, and it floods the History with an unaccpetable number of event entries and it causes the Task Scheduler MMC snap-in to crash when I visit the History tab because of its bulk.

Can I turn off logging of History for a given task?

What happens when you right click on it and filter Current log?

Apparently, Server 2008 automatically prunes a tasks event log when it grows beyond a certain size.  I didn't do anything special and it automatically purged a bunch of events that has kept the "History" tab usable.  Until it did this, when I'd click the "History" tab it would just lockup due to the sheer volume of data.

I don't have a solution for this but it does appear that it at least does some pruning of "successful" events.  <Shrug>
