How many times has a message appeared on your computer screen asking if it's OK to report an incident or error report to Microsoft? We'll bet they have never come back to you with a quick solution (or any solution). We'll even bet that they have never come back to you - period.

If you are running Windows XP, here's how to make that pesky nag screen go away for good: Right-click on My Computer. Select the Properties/.Advanced tab/ Error Reporting button and select the "Disable error reporting" option. Leave a checkmark in the "But notify me when critical errors occur" box.

That move alone will eliminate all but the most critical nag messages - the ones that never bring you a solution.

That's it and Shazam - the evil empire is off your back!
