As I was disabling some startup entries in msconfig I found this. what is dumprep 0 -k? The only information that I found in my system is the following:

Under regedit: HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run

name: KernelFaultCheck

type: reg_expand_sz

data: %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k

I did a virus and spyware scan and it's clean. I also did a google on it, but I only received results from dumprep 0 -u, but not dumprep 0 -k. I couldn't find any information on dumprep 0 -k. I'm no expert at this kind of stuff, but should that be in my system? Thanks in advance.

Dumprep 0 -k is legit, but not needed for startup

It's associated with memory dumps

Sagacity83,

Check out this article.

Microsoft has some KB articles but this one cuts to the chase. If you have ever crashed your computer the best way to learn about minidump files is to debug the one(s) on your own machine.
