Using powershell to remove drive and scheduler Task in windows

I have a PS script below which I'm using to find the sql service information, how do I modify this scripts so that it can be only use to delete folder in C:\data\wsus  and delete the scheduler after ?

$resultsFile = "f:\Powershell\result.txt"
$Instances = get-content "f:\powershell\allservers.txt"
out-file $resultsFile
foreach ($server in $instances)
{
"checking $server.."
$sqlservice = gwmi win32_service -filter "name like 'mssql%'" -computername $server | select name,systemname,startname
"$server `n ------ "| out-file -append  $resultsFile
$sqlService | ft | out-file -append  $resultsFile
}
