Critic error on windows sbs console security console "spam exchange"

I have installed Windows 2011 SBS with Exchange 2010,
Everything works perfectly! :D
But in the Windows SBS console I get an error on security, it says I don´t have spam protection for Exchange 2010, on the botton it says "Spam filtering has not started" (I have it in spanish). The thing it that I installed Forefront for Exchange 2010 and it´s working okey, so do I have spam protection?,  How can I elimitate that alert so I don´t get a critic alert?

My best regards,

This is correct. FPE2010 disables the SPAM checking abilities in native Exchange but the scheduled SBS summary and detailed reports do not know that FPE is installed hence the error message.

I have all engines working correct, and I don´t see the antivirus greyed out, but that doesn´t matter, is there a way that the critic error can be moved away?

Thank you lots,

Could not fix this point, maybe with a latter update.
Thank you for everything.
To fix this issue do the following:

You need to update an xml file that is called E12AntiSpam.xml and this is located on this path:

C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Data\SHExtensions\

Line 37 should be changed to:

$(Get-TransportAgent "FSE Content Filter Agent").Enabled

FROM:

$(Get-TransportAgent "Content Filter Agent").Enabled

To get the stats to work from the SBS console you will also have to change line 62 to:

$perfCounter = Get-Wmiobject Win32_PerfFormattedData_ForefrontExchangeContentFilterAgent_ForefrontExchangeContentFilterAgent
