Two questions: a) Task scheduler what is the use of this. 

B) is it safe or okay to delete/uninstall.

 

Thanks for any info on this.

The Task Scheduler is a component of Windows, so I suggest you to leave it alone and not try to disable, nor uninstall it :)

The Task Scheduler enables you to automatically perform routine tasks on a chosen computer. The Task Scheduler does this by monitoring whatever criteria you choose to initiate the tasks (referred to as triggers) and then executing the tasks when the criteria is met.

A lot of programs use this like Google Chrome,Adobe etc. for scheduling updates or other things. It's not advised to delete it because system may won't function properly. Remeber, if ain't broken, don't fix it .
