Hey Steve, saw that you had this, and was looking forward to applying it to my windows 2000 system. But then there wasnt instructions for Win2k.. Help! How do I turn off the error reporting in Windows 2000 running IE6?

    I don't have a copy of W2K installed but my W2K buddy (thanks David) said the only way to do it is with a registry hack. You can find the hack on the Annoyances.org site. Here's the direct link: http://snipurl.com/error_hack

    There's more about the issue on MS's site at http://snipurl.com/MSerror_reporting

    And if you have Microsoft Passport and Internet Explorer, you can (possibly) see the last 180 days of error reports from your PC. (Possibly because not all crashes reports have enough data for you to see it online.) It's part of MS's Online Crash Analysis (MOCA) service. Of course a better service might be to eliminate crashes, eh?
