Everytime a program on my computer hangs or crashes, dumpprep.exe spins for a long time getting a dump report ready for microsoft. Only problem is, I never send the report, because I need to get back to work. So all that time is wasted.
Thankfully, you can turn off this time wasting “feature”:
1. System Properties (Either via System in Control Panel, or Getting Properties on My Computer)
2. Advanced Tab, and choose “Error Reporting”. Set to “Disable Error Reporting”
3. You could also Select “Startup and Recovery” – Settings button, and change “Write Debugging information” from complete to none.
