Although I've done this myself, I found a very succinct way to disable the silly error reporting dialog boxes at this post on Jeremy Wagstaff's Loose Wire. From the post:
- Open System in the Control Panel (or right-click on the My Computer icon and select Properties.
- Choose the Advanced tab, and click Error Reporting.
- You can disable error reporting entirely here, or enable it selectively for certain programs. Click Ok when you're done.
This is an easy change that does not involve having to edit the registry or any of the other silly things that I sometimes post about.
