    I downloaded updates from windows update a little while ago and found a new entry loading on startup after the update. I am wondering if anyone can give me a little more info on it and tell me if I should disable it in startup or not. It is Kernal fault check. Here is what I found on it at pacs-portal startup list.


    kernelfaultcheck dumprep 0 -k
    dumprep 0 -u Used in connection with memory dumps - you can disable these by - right clicking on My Computer, selecting Properties and then the Advanced tab. Click on the Settings button in 'Startup and Recovery'. In the bottom pane - under 'Write debugging information' - click on the down arrow and then select 'None' - OK your way out

    I just download the last critical updates yesterday (2/5/03) and didn't notice the Kernal thing you got. Is this starting from the STARTUP folder or from Services? Is this XP Home?

    EDIT: Oops sorry, just saw your specs. (which by the way are almost identical with mine. :D )

    It appears in msconfig/startup as dumprep o-k. I use System mechanic to manage my startup and it appears there as KernelFaultCheck.
