Greetings,

Windows Server 2003 has this feature, where after Administrator logins to server, it displays all the errors which have occured since last login, like

"application.exe has encountered illegal operation and needed to close. Error occurred on XXXXX"

or something like that.

Each such is given with a message box, so the list can become very long.

How can I disable it?

Then click on the Advanced tab.
Click on the error-reporting button on the bottom of the windows.
Select Disable error reporting.

CiaranDolan,

If you suggest to disable the error reporting, how do the author get the diagnostic information? The problem is occured at application.exe and not at the error reporting.

Attach the following files at any webspace. I will study your log and dumps.
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\DrWatson\user.dmp
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\DrWatson\drwtsn32.log

Illegal operation (c0000006 or c000001d) is usually caused by hardware error. The Dr Watson log has the nt status code of the failing reason and it is the most useful diagnostic information

No you dont understand what I wanted. I want messages popping up when program crashes - that's all fine. And this is not about some specific application crashing either! It's about the same list of errors being reported as messages when administrator logins to the system - all the errors are repeated to him after logon!

And error reporting is already disabled there (it's not performance and maintenance btw..)

It is impossible to diagnostic your problem without system event log or Dr Watson log. Do you enable Dr Watson?

Why would you need those logs - it's not about why those errors happen. I know why they happen. I just want to disable that reporting when I login. It's enough that I see the message box about error WHEN it happens, I dont need all them repeated next time i logon to system..

This is software error. If the software error is resolved, you will not see the error message and it is the reason why I ask for the log. BTW I don't  know you assume that "application.exe has encountered illegal operation" is a normal messge.

Oh dear, for the third time - i know this is software error, and I _dont_care_about_it_. Software errors are bound to happen, I can't avoid them, and that is FINE, as I'm notified about them WHEN THEY OCCUR BY A MESSAGE. What I _do_not_need_ is same list of errors reapearring after next login! Let  me picture this more clearly.

11:00 User A logins to server.
11:05 Miranda encounters an error, message box shown to UserA.
12:00 PHP encounters an error, message box shown to UserA.
13:00 App1 encounters an error, message box shown to UserA.

14:00 AdminB logins to server.
14:00 AdminB gets message box saying that Miranda had an error at 11:05
14:00 AdminB gets message box saying that PHP had an error at 12:00
14:00 AdminB gets message box saying that App1 had an error at 13:00

But AdminB DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THOSE ERRORS, as UserA was already notified about them AND they are listed in Event Log aswell!

So all i want is to disable the second set of message box popping up and annoying the hell out of local admins!

Hope I make myself clear.

Ok, since the Experts appearently couldn't handle the task at hand, here is the solution:

This feature is called "error report queueing", and is default for windows 2003. it can be disabled at this registry
key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\ForceQueueMode (dword). I'm sure it can be done with gpedit aswell,
but this is good enough for me. Oh, and if you disable it, you'll get error message AND jit popping up - to disable first, change
this key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\ShowUI (dword again).
