HOWTO: Disable “Checking for Solutions” in Windows 7

imageHere’s one config change that I forgot to do on my new Windows 7 laptop and just thought about documenting on the blog.

Are you tired of the phrase, “Windows is checking for a solution to the problem…”?

I never get anything out of this any more.  I always hit cancel so why not just disable it? 

It’s actually quite easy.  All you have to do is:

  1. Click on the Action Center icon on your taskbar (white flag) -> Change Action Center settings -> Problem reporting settings –> Select the “Never check for solutions” radio button
  2. Or, you can use the Windows search box by clicking START & typing “Choose how to report problems” into the search box.  This will take you directly to the screen below and allow you to select the “Never check for solutions” radio button.
