Looking For Solution to Problem

You know when a program crashes or locks up and you ctrl/alt/del to shut it down, but insteaed of shutting down it goes into "Looking For Solution to Problem" mode. Is there a way of turning off this pointless crap? It never finds a solution and I am bewildered by why it is even there.

lick the cross in the top right corner (I think). Alternatively is there not a "Cancel" button. I cant't reproduce it now but I do know I have managed it before without a problem. I also don't really have any confidence in its ability to do anything useful.

Is there a way of turning off..............

Probably - but you'll first need to tell me your version of Windows.

Windows 7 Windows 10

There's a specific option to disable it in Windows 7, but in Windows 10 there isn't, so you'll have to resort to disabling the service. You'll find step-by-step instructions here.

Thanks I was doubtful that would work as it wasn't the reporting that was an issue but it did. So awesome
