Hi folks I have just had a computer shut down. Upon restart (It did it itself) a box came up saying that windows had recovered from a serious error. I then got a box from spybot resident saying
Important registry entry changed
Category System Start UP Global Entry
Change Value Deleted
Entry KernelFaultCheck

Old Data %systemroot%\system32\dumprep O -K

Do I allow change or not?
I do not like the sound of it. :wtf:

What that entry does is tell Windows to write a memory dump to your hard drive if it crashes for some reason. That's useful only if you intend to go through it to see what caused the crash.

Thanks Mike.
That is along the lines that I was thinking, It is nice to be right for once.
