Disable Error Reporting


Whenever an application suffers from an error, and is closed down by the system or by you, the Microsoft Error Reporting feature will pop up, asking you if you want to send a report about the problem to Microsoft.

Error Reporting

As I have reported previously, there are some privacy concerns with this.

Windows allows you to customize the way Error Reporting works. Open the System applet from Control Panel, and select the Advanced tab. Near the bottom, click the Error Reporting button.

You can enable or disable Error Reporting, or when you leave it enabled, you can specify which programs you want to exclude from this feature.
