"Windows is searching for a solution" disable ?

Hello, whenever a program crashes/freezes, and I use the control panel to close it, there comes a popup window telling me "windows is searching for a solution to this problem".
Is it possible to somehow disable that option, as it's really annoying and it never finds anything.
I just want to quickly close the program and continue with what I'm doing, not wait for something I don't need or want.

Using win7 home.


Yes, you can disable that. Type services.msc in the start menu then hit enter. Disable the Windows Error Reporting service and stop it too.

Great post - had forgotten you could disable that myself.
