Can the Perflib (Performance Monitor) be disabled?

Hi all
Is there a way to disable the Perflib component of the perfomance monitor so that event ID 1015 no longer shows up in the event viewer? The system is currently running fine so we don't feel the need to monitor at present but we would still like to be able to enable this feature later if needed

    This problem occurs if you install the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) service but you do not also configure this service. These error events are logged by the SNMP service when you restart the computer. If the Evntagnt.dll file is not configured for debug tracing when the SNMP service starts, these two warning events are logged.

    To stop these events from occuring, add the TraceFileName and the TraceLevel values to the following registry subkey:

    •    TraceFileName
    Type: REG_SZ
    Value: null (blank)
    •    TraceLevel
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 32 (0x20)

    Let me know.
