There are some alerts in SCOM that I do not need to appear again, as they are not important.
I want to disable that type of alerts.
What I have done, is right-clicking on the alert click open Health explorer and dig down to the error, right click on the error click Monitor then click Disable to disable all monitors of that class…
However even after doing that, and reset health, the same errors keep coming back.

Any help on fixing this issue will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

jskfan, I would have though that would have worked.  I've personally never disabled a monitor or rule directly from the right-click menu.  (First, I have this nasty fear that it would put an override in my default management pack.  *shiver*)

In my SCOM 2007 R2 environment, I usually configure an override though, and specify the override for the class or for specific object, and in the override menu, most monitors or rules have a specific value for 'enabled', in which I can disable the item.  (And importantly, I can specify exactly which management pack into which it should store the override.)  

Try that and see if it the alerts stop triggering?

So to disable a monitor , I need to check the "Enable" checkbox and under "Override Value", should I put True(which is the default) or do I need to change it to False ?

Yes, changing the 'Enable' value to 'False' is how I'd usually do it.
(And it may be that the quick 'disable' you did before did exactly that.  But that's what I'd want to confirm happened in that case.)
