Although it may be useful for Microsoft to fix the bugs, I personally don't like it because :
  • it is annoying to see the message pops up all the time; and

  • I don't know what kind of personal data it will send to Microsoft.

You can choose to disable error reporting totally. Here are the steps to do that.

  1. Go to "Start" then "Control Panel".

  2. Open "System" then choose "Advanced" tab.

  3. Click "Error Reporting" as shown in the follwing picture.

  4. System Properties from Control Panel

  5. Check "Disable error reporting" as shown below and click "OK".

Now you're ready to go!!!
