I'm not sure how it happened but I'm getting several pop ups on start up saying that a program is not working and for me to denug the program. I then get the following error message. No registered JIT debugger was specified. Click on retry to have the process wait while attaching a debugger manually. Click on cancel to abort the JIT debug request.

It seems to have knocked out most of my vital programs. Any help would be appreciated.

Just-In-Time debugging is a feature that launches the Visual Studio debugger automatically when a program, running outside Visual Studio, encounters a fatal error. Just-In-Time debugging allows you to examine the error before the application is terminated by the operating system. The Visual Studio debugger does not need to be running when the error occurs.

If an error occurs while Just-In-Time debugging is enabled, a dialog box opens, asking if you want to debug the program and which debugger you want to use.

Just-In-Time debuggingIf you do a search on the net for Just-In-Time debugging errors, you will find numerous complaints about this particular issue and various possible solutions. What works for one person may not work for another. There are articles by Microsoft Support and discussions at the Microsoft Developer Network with several suggested solutions.
