    How to turn off notifications about problem reports?


    Does anyone know if there's a way to turn off:

    "Check for solutions to problem reports"?

    I would like to stop receiving notifications. In Control Panel/Security and Maintenance this feature is listed under "Maintenance" with no option to disable. On the left side there is a link for:

    "Change Security and Maintenance Settings",

    but there is no option there either to turn this off. TIA

    Try this one. Run CMD as admin and enter:

    Code:
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting" /v "DontShowUI" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting" /v "DontShowUI" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    Can you tell me exactly what to type into CMD? When I copy/paste that in it just says "The system cannot find the path specified."

    I have yet to find a way to disable this on Windows 10 1703. ty

    I should have put it into the code, now it should work, you probably did not copy the whole thing.

    Thanks! Yeah I didn't enter it all. I'm a newb and didn't know reg add is first since I thought it started with the first quote mark, lol.
