Hello Ridgerunner, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry Skyler, but that policy is for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP operating systems only.

Instead, you could also turn off the System Maintenance Troubleshooter to disable that from happening.

System Maintenance Troubleshooter - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,
