:thumbsup: I am just learning how to work on cleaning up my computer. My nephew told me to Google items from my start up menu, that would allow me to find out what they were. In doing so I found Bleeping Computer, I was able to find a number of items to remove from the start up menu.
When I typed dumprep 0 -u this site said it had not matches and that they would like to be able to investigate this. What is this, and can I remove it from my start up menu.
:flowers:
Thanks,
Big4mama

BC's list of startups:

A better idea might be to download and install Startup Inspector, a utility that helps you set your startup list:

Be careful not to disable anti-virus or anti-malware programs, firewall or necessary operating system functions.

Hi big4mama, :thumbsup: to BC

Dumprep appears to be associated with the Windows Error Reporting Dump Reporting Tool.

Click the Answers That Work link in my signature, go to the task list and look it up for more information on how to shut this item down.
There is no justice, there is just us.

Hi big4mama

Do you mean dumprep not dumpprep?


Name: [kernelfaultcheck]
Status: N
File: dumprep 0 -u

Used in connection with memory dumps - you can disable these by - right clicking on My Computer selecting Properties and then the Advanced tab. Click on the Settings button in 'Startup and Recovery'. In the bottom pane - under 'Write debugging information' - click on the down arrow and then select 'None' - OK your way out

Just my 2 - disabling memory dump writing will affect you if you ever need to analyse a dump log file and can't get back into Windows to re-enable this setting.

It's not needed very often, but:
1) You should remember this in the event of a system crash - the troubleshooters may ask you for the dump file
2) If you can get back into Windows (even Safe Mode) you can re-enable it and then cause the computer to crash again. This will then generate the log that you need.
3) If you're a normal computer user and don't add/remove a bunch of stuff from your system - you probably won't have a need for a dump file (but you can never be sure). If you're going to be doing more and more with your computer - then I'd leave it enabled as it doesn't take up a lot of room.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
