Setting up SQL Alerts event log will not stop sending messages

I have setup two alerts on sql 2005
Unable to read local eventlog (reason: The parameter is incorrect) under SQL Agents for alerting for backup failures etc and integrity on all databases.

I am getting the following message now hitting the sql server log every minute

Unable to read local eventlog (reason: The parameter is incorrect)
is this  a bug? and if so what do I need to do
