Taffy,
Many people do turn this off because it can "churn" on slower machines.


However,what U have got to find out is why MS is creating the file.

It does not just create files "on tap". The norm is a problem with Windows Explorer not Internet Explorer but it could be anything that is serious which is when dumprep is triggered.

What is the Event Viewer saying?

I found Event Viewer, Maurice - eventually. The Microsoft KB article showed the wrong route - well at least for my PC. I found it in the Administrative Tools folder in the Control Panel.
There were a few errors in Applications & System - three related to hang-ups at the same time as the CPU was 100%. The other said that Bonjour Service didn't start. I've no idea what that is - I've asked Microsoft to clarify and I'll google shortly***.
There were no entries in Drivers Scanners nor Internet Explorer.
Now I know about the Event Viewer and having disabled dumprep, I'll check the Event Viewer regularly from now on.
I was impressed by the fact that when you clicked on an item, you could go direct to the Help & Support Center for an explanation. Mind you, some of the explanations were way over my head!
(I presume it was the dumprep that alerted me to the BT/Yahoo problem I mentioned a while ago, something that I'll post next time I have it, and so have the MS recommendations.)

** too busy to, at the moment. I'm just setting up a laptop I bought last November. 39 MS updates (400MB) and similarly for my Norton.
Great news there - I went onto Norton's OneClick Support and asked what I had to do to get a product for three machines, and how much would it be. (My laptop's free NIS had expired.) They input my tower's product key on my laptop and so the laptop is now part of the existing cover - free! They said I could also add my other laptop to it - again, free. It's one I got my younger daughter.
