txt :: Windows Error Reporting

So this morning I got to work and after only 10 minutes of using my computer I already had a program crash and the annoying windows popup that says "this and this program has been terminated unexpectedly. Do you want to send a message to microsoft?" came up. I'm sure we've all seen it and I can say with assurance that probably 99% of us have never even thought about pushing that "Send error" button. Well guess what: you can actually get rid of the error reporting message! It's not a hack or anything. Here's what you need to do:

Open up Control Panel -> System
Go to the Advanced Tab and click on Error Reporting and disable it!

I disabled it a long time ago. It's so nice.

There's also a setting so that Windows will still notify you of a crash. Leave that one on.

ok, maybe this will sound very geeky to you or stupid, but sometimes I click on send report and it's actually cool because it tells me what the problem is and where (usually).

Interesting Teo. I don't think I've ever tried it. Have they ever responded with anything?
