How do I disable error reporting?


Recently I've been getting this Microsoft error reporting window that says it will report the error to Microsoft and then close explorer. When composing an E-mail I lose the whole thing. This seems to be a new thing from Microsoft. When I try to find info about the error, they say there is none available for my error problem. Do you have any Info on this subject?

Your profile says win 98, i dont recall if win 98 has error reporting but for win xp.

By default, WindowsXP will request to report application errors to Microsoft

To turn this off:

Right click on the My Computer icon on the desktop

Select Properties / Advanced

Click on the Error Reporting tab

Check Disable error reporting
