A

"\Microsoft\Windows\Maintenance\WinSAT" is a scheduled task on Windows 7 system added as part of the Windows system.

You will see "\Microsoft\Windows\Maintenance\WinSAT" listed on Task Scheduler with the following information:

Name: WinSAT
Location: \Microsoft\Windows\Maintenance
Description: Measures a system's performance and capabilities
Actions: Custom handler
Triggers: At 1:00 AM every Sunday of every week.
History:
   Information 11:13:14 Task completed
   Information 11:13:14 Action completed
   Information 11:13:14 Task registration updated
   Information 11:13:14 Action Started
   Information 11:13:14 Task Started
   ...

"\Microsoft\Windows\Maintenance\WinSAT" is scheduled to run once a week. WinSAT (Windows System Assessment Tool) runs several benchmark tests to measure system's performance.

It is recommended to disable "\Microsoft\Windows\Maintenance\WinSAT" as a scheduled task. There is very little value of getting the test result.
