Don't check Agent status for Express Edition

Whenever I add a server to the monitoring that is Express Edition, I get alerted that the SQL Agent service is not running.
Well d'uh. It's Express Edition. The Agent service cannot run on it.

Instead of always giving me this alert and then having me go in and disable it for yet another server, why not change the logic to not raise this alert at all when the edition is detected as Express?
