When I go to run, type in msconfig and go to startup I now see a new entry. I think it may have something to do with MS error reporting, but I do not remember seeing it before. Can someone help me figure out what it is and if I need to be concerned. Should I just remove the check mark and forget about it. The entry is--dumprep 0 -k. I am using compaq presario , Windows XP SP2, Home Edition, IE6. Zone Alarm, AVG, Spybot, SpywareBlaster, AdAware, SuperAntispyware. All updates, etc. Thanks. Beav

You are right Beav,
I believe this is the program that, after a crash, will create a dump file and send it to Microsoft as part of Windows Error Reporting.(The prompt that comes up asking you if you want to send information to Micro$oft to help them debug the problem).
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Thanks TMacK for the reply. I will just remove the check mark where it is listed in startup.
