Try removing it from Startup and reboot the machine.

Run-> msconfig-> 'Startup' tab

Have you tried disabling it by going to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Problem Reports and Solutions > Change settings > Advanced settings

From here you should be able to turn the feature on and off.

Double click the offending wermgr.exe file. Then Select the Threads tab, and see what .exe or .dll is using the CPU, and then select it by double clicking it....and copying/pasting the call stack here.....

Might be able to see what UNDER that process is using the memory....

If just want to disable it.....

Under the Scheduled Tasks Tab, just uncheck it, and reboot.....

You can delete or disable wermgr - it will come back like Live does.
