Scheduled Task with weird name

How can I find out which task has a weird (UID?) name?


This is the log from the Agent:


Scheduler    14/02/2013    8:23:26 AM    Info    Next time(local) of task {A14CD6FC-3BA8-4703-87BF-E3247CE382F5}: Thursday, 14 February 2013 5:13:00 PM   

Scheduler    14/02/2013    8:23:25 AM    Info    Scheduler: Invoking task [{A14CD6FC-3BA8-4703-87BF-E3247CE382F5}]...

    Tasks with this sort of ID are usually created outside of ePO - so for example if a user creates a local scan task in their VSE console, it will have this kind of identifier.

    It's default Auto update task. I am not sure if there is any way to change the name of Identifier name. If you have update task from ePO then you can disable it from ePO (VSE 8.8 policy->General option settings->check the box ' '.
