How can Error Reporting be disabled on Windows XP to stop error messageboxes appearing when testing Internet Explorer?

Disabling Error Reporting can be useful when unexpected error dialogboxes appear whilst testing Internet Explorer. Sometimes these errors are not critical and do not crash Internet Explorer, but the appearance of the dialogbox can hamper a testcase. To disable Error Reporting on Windows XP:

  1. Right-Click on "My Computer" from the Desktop and choose "Properties" from the menu which appears.

  2. Click on the "Advanced" tab on the "System Properties" dialogbox.

  3. Click on the "Error Reporting" pushbutton.

  4. Click on the radiobutton, "Disable error reporting" and click on the "OK" pushbutton.
