Description:
A provider, PerfProv, has been registered in the WMI namespace, ROOT\CIMV2\MicrosoftHealthMonitor\PerfMon, but did not specify the HostingModel property.  This provider will be run using the LocalSystem account.  This account is privileged and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly impersonate user requests.  Ensure that provider has been reviewed for security behavior and update the HostingModel property of the provider registration to an account with the least privileges possible for the required functionality.  

Beyond my capabilities! No info from MS.
Thanks

aww, c'mon nicky, it's not beyond your capabilities... :-)

Understand that a WARNING is just that... it's doesn't necessarily mean you have to do anything.  But you might want to if you don't like the security level of having the LocalSystem account doing these things... if you ask me, just let it go.

Well I'm getting there I suppose. It's nice to have a clean event log but I see it isn't a reality! I had seen that article but took it as, "After SP1", sort of meaning directly after, not always after.
Thanks loads
Nick

It's easy to have a clean event log.  Turn off the server.  :-)

No events means nothing is happening!
