I run Win2k Pro and have Visual Studio 6.0 installed on my machine. Whenever any kind of error occurs, I see the "Runtime Error. Do You Wish to Debug?" window. How do I disable these popups and return it back to the way it was before I installed C++?

You can change the behaviour back by changing the "Debugger" entry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug to "drwtsn32.exe -p %ld -e %ld" or a blank entry. Don't delete the old one, rather rename it to "Debugger.0", so you can always go back. See also http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/debug/debug_8iwp.asp
