Disable Error Reporting

There is some benefit to allowing Win XP to send the error report to Microsoft; the company can see whether a patch is needed to make Win XP more compatible with applications. On the other hand, if your programs do this often enough, having to answer the error-report prompt constantly gets annoying.

If you right-click on My Computer and select Properties or open the System icon in the Control Panel, you'll see the System Properties dialog. Select the Advanced tab and click on Error Reporting. This brings up a dialog that lets you disable error reporting altogether. Even better, click on Choose Programs and disable error reporting for specific programs. That way, if you have an application that causes a lot of errors and you've already sent Microsoft half a dozen reports, you can disable the feature for that program and never see the prompts again.
