K. Prophett...

No, dumprep.exe is not a virus...it 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.

You might want to take a look in the Event Viewer and see what kinds of errors are reported there.
