I keep getting these TraceLevel Warnings on startup of my Windows Server 2003.  Is there something I can do to fix my registry so this warning does not continue to appear in my logs?

What does Trace do on my systme anyways, and why does it start everytime I boot my PC?

TraceLevel parameter not located in registry; Default trace level used is 32.
TraceFileName parameter not located in registry; Default trace file used is .

No debug tracing output file is generated. This is the default condition of the system. Debug tracing should only be turned on when you are debugging software.

These error events will continue to be logged when you restart the computer, unless you reconfigure the Evntagnt.dll.
User Action
No user action is required; however, you can stop Windows from displaying these messages in Event Viewer by reconfiguring the evntagnt.dll in the system registry.

Caution The following procedures change system registry settings. If Registry Editor is used incorrectly, serious system problems can occur, and the operating system may need to be reinstalled.

To stop displaying EvntAgnt 1015 messages in Event Viewer

Before starting SNMP, open Registry Editor.
Navigate to the following registry subkey:
Add the following registry values:
TraceFileNameType: REG_SZValue: null (blank)
TraceLevelType: REG_DWORDValue: 32
