Stop CPU Down/Up Notifications



I am using PRTG 7.

I am having trouble configuring notifications for my server CPU sensors. Occassionally the status of the sensor goes "Down" with a message of "No such instance (SNMP error # 223)". I get emailed every time this happens and again when the sensor comes back up.

I have selected the Notifications tab in the Sensor Details page and unchecked the "Inherit trigger(s) from parent object(s)" box. There is nothing listed under "State Trigger(s)" or any other Triggers for that matter. Yet I still keep getting these emails. Where should I be configuring this?
