The Application Error Reporting tool collects information automatically whenever an Office program stops responding, and allows you to send a report to Microsoft.
To disable the Application Error Reporting tool, you can include commands in a Logon script AND in a Startup script.
NOTE: These commands use REG.EXE, built into Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and later operating systems, or installed from the
Windows 2000 Support Tools.
