    This allows you to tell Microsoft every time something crashes in Windows XP. Want to get rid of that message? Here's how:
    --Click Start and right-click My Computer
    --Click Properties>>Advanced. Click Error Reporting.
    --Select "Disable Error Reporting" Click OK>>OK.

    Here is the way to do it in W98. I don't know what other systems this will work on.

    MS Error Reporting

    In Registry Editor (Regedit.exe), create a DWORD value called IEWatsonEnabled and set it to 0 in the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

    Or follow the route of administrative tools/ services / and set it to disabled from the list.
    Xp has many roads leading to a common destination.
