Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this is:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k
I know 04 means it runs at startup, and it looks like something that would be there by default, but just recently is when I noticed it. What exactly is this and what does it do? Should I remove it? Is this pointing to a file elsewhere that I should remove?
Thanks for any help :tazz:

Hi macht,

It is 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.

It is legit and it shouldn't be removed.
