  1. I get send error report/Don't send when ever I open anything from desktop. have done a chkdsk, registry clean, dsk cleanup. I dunno what else that might stop this error.



    I thought of formating but my tafe teacher said to our class any man can format it takes a bigger man to find a solution

    Wise words, wise words indeed!
    Until flash drives take over the world, then it's format every day :)

    Anyway, please try Start-->Run
    sfc /scannow

    You may need your Windows CD (just in case it asks)
    The process can take about an hour (but all's still good at the end)
    And you should disconnect your Network cable first, and exit any personal firewall.

    Please try that

    sfc<space><ForwardSlash>ScanNow (um lots of users get it wrong, so I threw that in)

    Here's one (on a quick Google)

    Open Control Panel
    Click on Performance and Maintenance.
    Click on System.
    Then click on the Advanced tab
    Click on the error reporting button on the bottom of the windows.
    Select Disable error reporting.
    Click OK
    Click OK

    But this will disable "Send error report" Not sure if that's reasonable or not?

    Actually this one is better:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930916

    Put that error thingo back on again!

    Edit:
    Mind you, mine's off, but I disable Help and Print Spooler, and Indexing, and Security Center, and just about anything I can disable!

    I downloaded am update (have 2 NTFS drivers) and disabled error reporting

    what i forgot to mention in my first post when it came up I lost my taskbar and items on desktop briefly. and If it was first time since start up I'd loose icon in running tasks. It happends everytime I click something off desktop and sometimes just browsing files

    It can be Malware Memtest; or even HardDrive

    (Links inside those 3)

    Maybe start with Memtest

    Actually check Event Viewer (in Control Panel --> Administrative Tools) first

    Well that's it, usually it's 7 Passes
    If it's 100% ok, then Memtest can be closed
