Disable WinSAT scheduled task

I would like to be able to remove the WinSAT task with group policy. Or schedule it so that it does not run automatically. We are seeing some resource issues with it. I looked at trying to update it with GPP but did not see a 'good' way to accomplish deleting the task.
Thanks for your help.

You can not manage scheduled tasks through GP.
You can try to create login script that will delete this .job file in c:\windows\tasks folder.

You could run a vbscript on login to delete the task. Something like this....

  ' Delete WinSAT scheduled task
  Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  strTask = "schtasks.exe /delete /tn TASKNAME /f"
  objShell.run "cmd /c " & strTask,0,True
