Dumprep.exe always hangs the system, is there any way to disable it so that applications can crash (or I can force close them) peacefully?

Doesn't this method works? – aland Sep 8 '11 at 19:26
Is dumprep.exe actually causing the hang, or is it the result of a hung app? dumprep normally runs when an application has crashed or hung. – music2myear Sep 8 '11 at 19:40
Crashed app closes and leaves dumprep running, it uses most of processing power and leaves nothing for me to work on – LifeH2O Sep 8 '11 at 19:45
@aland: it works :) thanks – LifeH2O Sep 8 '11 at 19:45

How to disable dumprep.exe:

  1. Right click on “My Computer,” choose “Properties” from that menu.
  2. Click on “Advanced tab,” Click the “Error Reporting” button.
  3. Check the “Disable error reporting” box. You may choose to uncheck the the box below it, “But notify me when an error occurs,” if desired.

Voila, the annoying dumprep.exe tool is now disabled!
