sqlseverexpress 2008 agent xps question

I have a server that is running sql express 2008.   the sql server agent is stopped and i am also reading that sql express doesn't have xp agent anyway (so why is it listed in services).  I am receiving a bunch of log file errors where it is advising me to turn on agent xps with an sp configure command.
any thoughts?  currently the app is throwing a bunch of errors and my event log is littered with the agent errors.


the exact language of the error is
sql server blocked access to procedure 'sys.zp_sqlagent_enum_jobs' of component 'agent xps' because this component is turned off as part of the security configuration for this server.  A system administrator can enable the use of 'agent xps' by using sp_configure

SQL Server Express doesn't offer the SQL Agent service so you'll never be able to activate the 'agent xps'.
If you want this to work you'll need to upgrade to SQL Server Standard Edition. Mind that's not free.
