Hi. I've been having this program(?) in my task manager called dumprep 0-k coming up often. I've been trying to run msconfig and disable it from starting up too but it comes back. How does it affect me?

it shouldn't affect you at all. Its a necassary system task that if you encounter a bluescreen of death it will dump the informaion in memory to a file. Windows Error Reporting Dump Reporting Tool is the official title. Control Panel | System | Advanced |startup and Recovery. However, we don't recomend doing this.

I would actually turn the memory dump options off, for the simple reason that it means absolutely nothing to anybody outside of Microsoft, plus it just takes up HDD space.
