Several times throughout the day, dumprep.exe takes up all of my CPU usage. I have to open the task manager and close them through the processes tab. It gets really anoying because sometimes it makes my computer completely freeze up. What is dumprep.exe? Any help will be appreciated. :whistling:

Howdy:

As per liutilities.com:

dumprep.exe forms a part of Microsoft Windows XP (and later versions), in-built fault logging software. Upon serious errors this program will write the details to a text file and request the information be sent to Microsoft. This program is a non-essential system process, and is installed for third party use.

It is NOT recommended you remove it but it can be disabled by doing the following:

Right click on “My Computer,” choose “Properties” from that menu.

Click on “Advanced tab,”

Click the “Error Reporting” button.

Check the “Disable error reporting” box. You may choose to uncheck the the box below it, “But notify me when an error occurs,” if desired.
