Disable Error Reporting to Microsoft

Whenever a program crashes, an error-reporting window pops up, prompting you to send an error report to Microsoft. This can be quite annoying, especially if you have a particularly recalcitrant application. Turning this feature off can really save time and lets face facts: you don't really want to help Microsoft debug XP now do you?

You can disable this feature or have it appear on a program-by-program basis. To disable error reporting:

  1. Choose Performance and Maintenance from Control Panel.
  2. Choose System and click on the Advanced tab.
  3. Click on the Error Reporting button.. The Error Reporting dialog box will appear, shown in Figure 1.
  4. Click on Disable Error Reporting to turn off the warning. If you'd like Error Reporting disabled, but want to be informed of dangerous system events, check the box next to But notify me when critical errors occur.

To decide on a program-by-program basis whether to use error reporting:

  1. From the Error reporting dialog box, choose the Enable Reporting radio button, and click on Choose Programs. The Choose Programs dialog box appears.
  2. Click on All Programs in this list, and then check boxes next to those programs for which you want error reporting, and uncheck those boxes for which you don't want error reporting. By default, the only choices you have are Programs from Microsoft, or Windows components. To add more choices to the list, click on Add, and then browse to the programs you want to add to the list.
You can also exclude specific programs from error reporting. Under the Do not report errors for these programs setting, click on Add, and then when the program appears, make sure its box is checked
