I have to disagree potentially.

Open Enterprise Manager and expand the Management>SQL Server Agent folder and click on Alerts.
You should see by default 9 alerts whose names all start with Demo.
Select them all and Delete. If you don't use alerts there is no point in sp_sqlagent_get_perf_counters running. If there are no Alerts defined it won't run.
