Is it possible to never see the "Send data to Microsoft" messagebox? Since I don't have the will to send logs every time an app crashes, where can I switch the flag to display this message to "Off"?

I thought the critical update notification was for them to send me notifications, not the other way around!

I should have mentioned I was on Windows XP. That program is not in the list.

How to Disable Internet Explorer Error Reporting
To disable Internet Explorer Error Reporting, use one of the following methods, depending on your computer.

Click the Advanced tab, and then click Error Reporting.


Click Disable error reporting to disable both user and kernel-mode error reporting, or click to clear the Programs check box.

I'd like to thank you too, BrianF! That's been annoying the heck out of me and I never noticed the option to shut it off.
