System Program Problem Detected

Hello,

I am a noob when it comes to troubleshooting Linux.  I've been using Ubuntu 14.04 for quite a while now and am getting around my day-to-day tasks using Nautilus and the terminal window.  I feel like I am ready to begin tackling some of the issues that arise.  For example, each time I boot, I get the attached error (System program problem detected).  In a Windows environment, I would begin by examining the Event Logs and possibly use MSConfig to disable services and startup items until I found the issue.  Unfortunately, I have no idea where to begin with Linux.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

TB

Ubuntu uses an error reporting system called apport. You have probably some crash reports which your system is trying to resubmit.
You can remove old reports by
sudo rm /var/crash/*

Open in new window


BTW, In Linux, system logs are written into /var/log directory. And if you want to stop some services from running on system start, read http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/#disabling-a-job-from-automatically-starting
