msconfig startup item?

dumprep ) -k (is the item)
%systemroot$\system32\dumprep 0 -k (is the Command)
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (is the Location)

Why is the above in the Startup items and would it have anything to do with
some problems that I was having with a driver conflict between two drivers
(thay were using the same twain device) that I think I have resolved? Would
there be a problem with getting rid of this Startup Item or is it there
because it is needed and should be there?

Specifies whether Windows will write event information to the system log
when the system stops unexpectedly.

If you have other, serious problems, then dumprep 0-k is automatically
enabled.

dumprep 0 -k

KernalFaultCheck:
%systemroot%\\system32\\dumprep 0 -k

Dumprep.exe = Windows Error Reporting Dump Reporting Tool

You can disable this....
Right click My Computer | Properties | Advanced tab | Under Startup and
Recovery | Settings button | Under System Failure | UNCheck: Write an
event to the system log | Under Write debugging information | Select (None)
| OK | Apply | OK

Write an event to the system log = dumprep 0-k
[[Specifies whether Windows will write event information to the system log
when the system stops unexpectedly.
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to set
recovery options.]]

Write debugging information:
[[Specifies what type of information Windows should record when the system
stops unexpectedly, and the name of the file that holds this information.]]

Dump file:
[[Provides a space for you to type the name of a log file that Windows can
use to write the contents of system memory when the system stops
unexpectedly.
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to set
recovery options.]] %systemroot%\MEMORY.DMP is the default.

If you have other, serious problems, then dumprep 0-k is automatically
enabled.

If you have Error Reporting enabled, this entry may show up for the first
time after your PC has experienced a Windows XP dump crash, or an Office
XP or Internet Explorer 6 crash where you were prompted about sending the
crash results to Microsoft.

To disable Error Reporting....
Right click My Computer | Properties | Advanced tab |
Error Reporting button | Disable error reporting

Also.
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | OK |
Scroll down to and double click: Error Reporting Service | Apply | OK

Thanks for all the good information! One more question: Would you just
leave it on the startup items or would you follow the information that you
gave me on how to get rid of it? Is there a best answer on whether to leave
it or get rid of it?

This 67 year old type 1 diabetic thanks you VERY MUCH for your knowledge and
fast response for for my questions! Now, from what you say, it must be okay
for me to set the Dump file back to the default setting:
%systemroot%\MEMORY.DMP and if there is a big problem it will go back to the
setting that it is right now (%systemroot$\system32\dumprep 0 -k) - is that
right?

I love learning the complications of a computer!

msconfig startup item?
