Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I'll tell you this: don't expect a quick fix.
As to me that is enough.
I would add that it's important to send the info to Microsoft *when the error is a surprise*. Sometimes when my computer gets totally bogged down (too many programs that all want 100% CPU and 100% I/O), I use TaskMgr to kill one or more non-responding programs. Every time I kill a non-responding Microsoft program, I am offered the opportunity to send the info to Microsoft. I don't do it because it's not a real error; it's something that I know I caused.
I appreciate the answer. It was pretty much what I thought happened. Although I did look for an instant remedy from microsoft.
It's a total effort in frustration sending an error report to Microsoft. You will NEVER get a reply, you will NEVER get help and why should you bother helping the money makingest gang on the Internet make even more money? Maybe I'm old fashioned but I would expect at least a thank you note. I turned off reporting a long while ago. If they want my help they can pay for it.
I am very new to computers, so I send the error,and several times I have got answers back with some helpfull things to try, sometimes the answers are too teck for me so I pass.This dose not happen every time but I am very thankful when they do.
Call it conspiracy theory if you want, but there are several fairly reputable claims of Microsoft PURPOSELY configuring their software to break competitors' software running on Windows. (Remember the old purported MS slogan "DOS ain't done til Lotus won't run"). Just in case its still true, why should I help Microsoft figure out how to possibly better hobble competing products?
I have a problem with MS Error report every time I check my email in Outlook. Tried everything but it wouldn't go away. Any suggestion?
Well I just bought some 2DVD games pack (sorry but those were pirated copies comes with crack folder etc.) these games are easily available in market. All most every games after successfully installation gives me this "Send Dont send error" when I run it, to my surprise it is working on other systems perfectly
