How to disable the error reporting nag in Windows Vista

 

 

Every time a software hangs or crashes in Windows Vista, the system prompts you to use Windows Error Reporting (WER) in order to send information to Microsoft about such a failure. In case you don’t want to use this nagging feature, here is a simple trick on how to disable it.

  1. Click Start.
  2. Click Run… and type gpedit.msc
  3. Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Error Reporting.
  4. Double click on Disable Windows Error Reporting.
  5. Done

This trick doesn’t work on Windows Vista Home and Premium, since they don’t have the command: gpedit.msc. To disable the WER option on these Windows versions, just follow the following trick:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Type Problem Reports in the Search field and press Enter.
  3. Click Change Settings.
  4. Click Advanced Settings.
  5. Click Off under Advanced Settings for problem reporting.
