I've been having problems for about 2 weeks with Windows XP slowing to a crawl at times when I have lots of things open. An consistent error comes when I shut down abut dumprep.exe.
Solutions I've tried
In investigating everyone says to turn it off in the registry or Control Panel/SYSTEM icon/ADVANCED tab / Error Reporting
It's not on and I can't find the file anyplace in the registry
The file is in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dumprep.exe
Windows XP Pro - SP3
It definitely gets loaded some way and causes a problem about once or twice a week and causes me to shut down.
Symantec is on and I've run a complete scan on the computer with not threats found.
The dumprep is not in the system startup
Does someone know how to stop dumprep.exe from loading along with anything else I should know.
Thanks in advance for any help.
