My laptop runs W8.1. Since a few weeks the boot-up is running longer than usual, but otherwise the laptop works fine. I checked the Task Manager and noticed, that Windows Fault Reporting (or WER) takes a lot of HD activity and time (see attached file), but I couldn't find any WER log files to check what is going on. I looked into the eventviewer under application and found several Error messages with this text: The configuration registry database is corrupt. (C/users/myname/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/UsrClass.dat). I ran sfc /scannow and the message was...."did not find any integrity violations".
Is there a connection between the WER activity and the error messages in the eventviewer?
Is there a fix to it?
I appreciate your comments very much.
