Disable 'Checking for Solution to Problem' in Windows 7

When something goes wrong in your Windows 7 such as abnormal termination of a application, force closing of programs etc, we see the frustrating message ‘Windows is checking for a solution to the problem….’.


Many times we have noticed that this function doesn’t actually give any solutions. It commonly ends with a message that Windows was unable to find a solution for the problem.

For this reason, you may be thinking to disable this altogether. For stopping the message and avoid wasting your time, proceed with the following steps:

1. Click “Start” > “Control Panel”.

2. In the “Control Panel” choose display as “Large Icons” or “Small Icons”.

3. Now click on “Action Center”.

4. In the left pane, click on “Change Action Center Settings”,

5. Click on ‘Problem Reporting Settings”.

6. In the problem reporting settings, choose the option “Never check for solutions”.


If you are willing to apply the same setting to all the users in your computer, click on “Change report settings for all users”.

Once you are finished with the changes, click “OK”.

That’s it. Windows will not trouble you with the ‘Windows is checking for a solution to the problem….’.
