Are popup messages being displayed for these warnings?
Or, are you looking in the Event Log and see them listed there?

In that case i wouldn't worry about it or try to prevent these (or any) warnings or messages.
I have many entries in my Event Logs similar to this.
Windows is just logging info, and that info may help if there ever is a problem that needs troubleshooting.
I think Win 7 does well at managing messages, logs, space used, etc. with the defaults.
There's probably a way to set the max space used or delete history, but again, i don't see a need for that.
Unless i have a space or performance problem, i just let windows 7 manage this...

I'm no guru and this is just my experience / opinion...
I've had Win 7 installed and running for ~3 years without something like this causing an issue.
