How to disable Error Reporting on Windows® 7
Explain the various aspects of error reporting. Why is it necessary to disable error reporting and how can it be done on Windows 7?
Windows 7 is the most advanced version of Windows Operating Systems developed by Microsoft Corporation. Windows 7 also operates on the same working platform as that of its predecessors and therefore shares some common features and options with them. Windows 7 has a simple user interface. The Windows 7 Operating System enables the users to do more under minimal complications and support large number of external applications that helps enhance overall productivity of the users. The error reporting feature of Windows 7 allows the users to solve the issues in the system that are related with applications and other working parameters. The error reporting service reports the users about the errors that are occurring in the system and also enables to check online for possible solutions. Even though it is a very useful feature, the error reporting service takes time to identify issues and report it to the user and this sometimes causes the system to freeze or become unresponsive, which compels the users to turn off the feature using the available options.
Discussed below are some points that will help the users to disable error reporting in Windows 7:
- Using action centre settings
- Open group policy options
- Disabling error reporting

The action centre options in Windows 7 control panel allow the users to disable the error reporting services.
