Windows XP Services - Error Reporting Service

Windows XP  Services - Error Reporting Service

Microsoft Description:

Allows error reporting for services and applications running in non-standard environments.

Importance of Error Reporting Service
  • This is responsible for the box that pops up wanting you to report an application error or system crash to Microsoft.

  • The Error Reporting Service provides an infrastructure for collecting, storing and reporting kernel mode, operating system and application faults to Microsoft. Error reporting helps Microsoft track and address errors. You can configure error reporting to send Microsoft specific error information and to generate reports for operating system errors, Windows component errors or program errors. An operating system error causes the computer to display a blue screen with error codes. A program or component error causes the program or component to stop working.

  • If you have an Internet connection, you can report these errors directly to Microsoft. You can configure error reporting to respond to program errors in one of two ways: as soon as an error occurs, the error reporting dialog box can prompt any user to send the error to Microsoft, or the next time an administrator logs on, the error reporting dialog box can prompt the administrator to send the error report to Microsoft.
