As much as anyone, I really appreciate the effort that Microsoft put help end users to find resolutions to their crashes. However, after debugging a crashing application today, I got a little tired of looking at the spinning bar and itching for the Debug button of old.

Fortunately, it’s easy to toggle off the automatic checking. Start Problem Reports and Solutions program (WERCON.EXE), and click the Change Settings link. In the Choose how to check for solutions to computer problems, select the Ask me to check of a problem occurs and click OK.

Now when you crash, you can click on Debug immediately.
