    Problem/Error Report (Service Pack 2)

    I cannot recall how to stop those annoying popups to tell/not tell Microsoft when Windows experiences an error or problem. I would appreciate assistance.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    It can be useful to let Microsoft know of problems that cause applications to crash, but if you want to suppress the "Please tell Microsoft about this problem" prompt:

    - Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop.
    - Select Properties from the popup menu.
    - Activate the Advanced tab.
    - Click the Error Reporting button.
    - Select "Disable error reporting".
    - Click OK.

    (You can also selectively enable/disable error reporting for Windows or for all or specific applications)

    I'd strongly recommend you leave error reporting turned on at least for Microsoft applications. Error reports are a primary way Microsoft uses to determine what is a priority to repair. So, the more an error is reported the more likely it is to be fixed.

    My only Microsoft application is the operating system. That remains "on."
