Disable certain unexposed features VMX24

Please advice solution for scan results i got from VMware compliance checker..For Esxi 4.1

 VMX24 - Disable certain unexposed features

Because VMware virtual machines are designed to work on both vSphere as well as hosted virtualization platforms such as Workstation and Fusion, there are some VMX parameters that don't apply when running on vSphere. Although the functionality governed by these parameters is not exposed on ESX, explicitly disabling them will reduce the potential for vulnerabilities.

If you have a test ESXi host you may want to applied it to these servers first instead of your production servers to make sure the change does what you hope.

Just a suggestion.
