BGInfo Extension for Windows VMs (How to prevent installation)

Problem: The BGInfo extension is automatically being added to VMs created by Powershell. This extension is not needed in our environment and is adding extra time to the deployment of the VM (time is very critical for us when deploying new VMs).

I have tried to find in Azure documentation on how to disable this as I am definitely not enabling the BGinfo extension in the Powershell code that I have. Also, I cannot seem to find a great way to prevent it being installed when I deploy a new VM through the AZ module.

Anyone already have a solution to this?
