Occasionally my puter all but locks up. When this happens a process in task manager called "dumprep.exe" is using almost all of my cpu. If I end the dumprep.exe process everything seems to go back to normal. Info I have found on dumprep.exe seems to indicate that it is a microsoft process and should not be deleted. Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? :whistling: Its not a major problem but can be annyoing and I dont know if I am going to do harm to something else when I go in and end the process.

dumprep.exe is a error dump preparation tool that makes a text file to send off the Microsoft in the event of a major system error. While MS may find it handy to get the info, it generally doesn't do much for you. You can disable Error Reporting to prevent this report from being sent, thus preventing dumprep.exe from running.

Do the following to disable Error Reporting:

Right click on My Computer and select Properties.

Click on the Advanced tab and then the Error Reporting button.

Change the option to "Disable error reporting."

You can also uncheck "But notify me when an error occurs" if you don't want to know when an error occurs.
