Need Help to Resolved Some Small Problems in My PC

Hello, thanks for taking time to read this thread.

All of a sudden, some things in my PC are screwed up. I use the Windows XP.

1. cannot get rid of "Send Error Report" popup

I used the Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) for downloading things from the internet. Most of the time, DAP was very helpful. But, DAP failed to intercept when I tried to download a zip at the Exadel web site.

After I tried DAP (with failures) to download that particular zip many times, I simply cannot get rid of the "Send Error Report" popup.

The Microsoft gives me an automatic message saying it is not a Microsoft problem if I confirm (click on "Yes") to send the report.

Then, I am stuck with this unresolved problem. Every time I log onto my PC, I get this popup asking me if I want to send the error report.

2. cannot "empty" Bulk and Trash of my Yahoo e-mail account

I have had a Yahoo e-mail account for six years. For more than 5 1/2 years, I had no problem to click on the "empty" to clean up e-mail in the "Bulk" folder or in the "Trash" folder.

In recent months, the "empty" link does not respond to my clicks any more. The problem happens only if I use my own PC. The "empty" link still work if I use the PC at work.

Therefore, something is not functioning well in my PC. I do see a "Javascript" problem popup every time I want to shut down my PC.

I am writing in hope someone knows exactly what to do to get rid of those annoying small problems.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi this may work!

1. Right click on My Computer.
2. Click on manage.
3. Click on Services and Applications.
4. Then click Services.
5. Double Click Error reporting Service.
6. Set start-up type to disabled.

Hope this helps else you can type: mmc in the run box in the windows menu and add a Snapin and choose group policy and have a look through the options. But am sure the above will work. Any probs give me a shout.
I agree. Here's the link:
