Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Windows Server 2008 has by default some mechanism that automatically logs data about an application failure. I believe is called "System Queued Error Reporting".

Is there a way to disable it?

I think you mean "System Queued Error Reporting". :-) – Jessica McKinnon Sep 5 '09 at 22:12

I don't have a 2008 machine handy to verify that they are exactly the same, but here's where you can disable it in Vista through Group Policy (using gpmc.msc for domain-level edits or gpedit.msc for local edits):

  • Computer Configuration
  • Administrative Templates
  • System
  • Internet Communication Management
  • Internet Communication settings
  • Turn off Windows Error Reporting: Enabled

On Windows Server 2008, Windows Error Reporting is disabled by default. You can turn it On/Off by

  1. Start -> Administrative Tools -> Server Manager.
  2. Click on the machine name in Server Manager
  3. Scroll down to the very bottom under Resources and Support.
  4. Click "Turn On Windows Error Reporting"
