AntigenService Event ID 8046

I am using Antigen 9.2.1097 on my Exchange 2003 SP2 / Server 2003 R2 SP2 server. On a nightly basis I get the following error in my event viewer three times.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      AntigenService
Event Category:      MAPI Error
Event ID:      8046
Date:            4/23/2010
Time:            2:00:28 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      FOREFRONT

The Sophos Virus Detection Engine scan engine is now obsolete and no longer supported. Updates are no longer available for this engine, and therefore the update check for this engine has been disabled.  Please review the scan engines chosen for your scan jobs and make another selection to ensure up-to-date protection.For more information, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=152864.

I get one for each of Sophos , CA Vet, and  AhnLab engines. I know that these engines are obsolete. I have disabled them in all of my Antigen scan jobs and engine update tasks. They show as disabled in scheduled tasks and haven't run for almost 10 days. What am I missing?

It says that the update for that engine is enabled... check it. YOu have one update job for every engine, check that them are disabled.
But do you know that there is a Service Pack for Antigen that removes that engines?

Hope this helps.

Looks like I still had these scanners enabled in some jobs. Disabled them everywhere and they disappeared.
