How to disable Windows is checking for the solution to the problem

I knew how to disable this completely useless feature in Windows 7 but can't figure out where to find the setting in Windows 10.  What was "System and Security" is now "Security and Maintenance."  Has anybody figured out how to disable this yet?  Thanks.

Hello Jeremy,

Thank you for posting your question on Microsoft community.

I appreciate you for providing details about the issue.

Microsoft does not recommend disabling Windows error reporting.

However, if you want to disable it, you may follow these steps:

a. Press Windows + X keys and click control panel.

b. At top-right corner, type check for solutions in the search box and then click "Choose how to cheeck for solutions".

c. Click "Never check for solutions(not recommended)" and then click ok.

I hope this information helps.

Please do let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thank you

None of those options appear to come up in the search. Nor can I find anything similar in the search results.

"Choose how to check for solutions" is not an option that appears when searching for "check for solutions" in Windows 10.

This does not answer the question for *Windows 10*.  How can a *Microsoft Employee* mess that up?

The "Choose how to check for solutions" option isn't available in windows 10. Is there another set of instructions for Windows 10?

Had the same problem and wanted to disable windows 10 error reporting! Could not find from Microsoft so I searched Google and found answer here " http://superuser.com/questions/950997/disable-error-reporting-in-windows-10-home"

Text I used; ( 

It appears that the only option available to Home users is to disable Error Reporting via modifying the Disabled key in the registry.

Open Regedit. Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting

Find the value named "Disabled" or add a new DWORD value with this name if it doesn't exist. The default value of this key is 0. Double click it to edit, change the value to 1 and save.

This disables the automatic appearance of the dialogue where Windows is searching online to try to find a solution. You are instead shown a dialogue stating that the application has crashed, giving you the option to Debug. However, unlike previous versions of Windows, no error code is provided in this dialogue. The specifics of the error must be accessed through:

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Security and Maintenance

Under the tab "Maintenance", you can click "View reliability history", which will show a list of all app crashes. You can then click "View technical details" beside each crash to get more detailed information, such as a the error code(s) thrown from the application on crash.)

Worked for me! Good luck!

 I swear I have been playing with and using windows going back thirty+ years started on windows 3.1 although liked Tandy Desktop way better! up until now and windows 10, I have started to play with Linux mint, It will do about all the same things you could need and I can run it off USB drive!

So never though I would but just might be giving up on window's sorry to say, but now it is way too slow and unreliable! Sucks! Sad due to the fact that it did run so good in the past and was way cheap enough! Oh well.

Regards Scott

It is this kind of useless functions worsened by straight wrong answers that makes us angry.

I am using Windows 10 Pro. No option for turning off this pathetic function either. So many thanks for your tips.

This no longer appears to work as of the anniversary update.  Windows Error Reporting stays on regardless of the presence of the DWORD value.

I can confirm Bajax's experience. I too cannot disable the "Check for solutions" (is On since the update to RS1) even though my registry does have the "Disabled" value to 1.
