Bought the new rtx 206p gateway creator series and seems good so far however I seem to have an issue where a random powershell pop up occurs everytime I start up the laptop within 4 to 5 mins each time.

I checked Task Scheduler and it seems to be realted to MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskMachineCore and MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskMachineUA. After trial and error with different ideas of what could be the culprit, i disabeld both of those and the pop up no longer appears. It used to appear everytime I started the machine between 4-5 minutes.

I don't plan on using Edge so i dont need those right?
There is this warning in their description though
" Keeps your Microsoft software up to date. If this task is disabled or stopped, your Microsoft software will not be kept up to date, meaning security vulnerabilities that may arise cannot be fixed and features may not work. This task uninstalls itself when there is no Microsoft software using it. "

How come no one else is reporting this issue? Would this random issue cause further concern over this laptop...I can still return and just keep the Acer Nitro 5...
