JSI Tip 4612. Windows XP Error Reporting.

You can disable, enable, and modify what happens when an error occurs in Windows XP.

By default, when an error occurs, you are prompted to report the error to Microsoft. If you report the problem, Microsoft will send you a link to the resolution, if one exists.

To configure Error Reporting:

1. Right-click My Computer and press Properties.

2. Select the Advanced tab.

3. Press Error Reporting.

4. If you Disable error reporting, check the But notify me when critical errors occur box.

5. If Enable error reporting is checked, you can check Windows operating system, Programs, or both.

6. You can press the Choose Programs button and configure All Programs or All programs in this list. You can then Add programs. You can also exclude programs in the Do not report errors for these programs area.
