WinMgmt error in Event log

I started to get this error in my event log about a week ago, and can't come up with anything on how to fix this. Running SBS2003. Not sure if there's any link, but this error started appearing the day after I upgraded the antivirus software on the server from SAV 9.0 to SAV10.0.2, along with SMSMSE

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      WinMgmt
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      63
Date:            2006-03-29

User:            NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:      SBS01
A provider, PerfProv, has been registered in the WMI namespace, ROOT\CIMV2\MicrosoftHealthMonitor\PerfMon, to use the LocalSystem account.  This account is privileged and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly impersonate user requests.

Is this something I should worry about and try to fix, or just leave it there ?

1. Event ID 63 occurs when you run the Microsoft System Information program
from Office 2003;en-us;891642

As per Microsoft: "Health Monitor registers several Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) providers to run under the local system account to access the information that the providers supply. Because providers that run under the local system account pose a greater risk if they are compromised, Microsoft Windows 2003 generates warnings when these providers are registered". See M820460 to find out for what providers this event is generated.

From a newsgroup post: "Typically occuring when a Service Pack is applied, these messages are completely normal. This happens when the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Provider is doing it's business."
