You can't get rid of it. Period. It's part of the Windows program. But, you should send it if there's really a problem with your Bro's comp. Other than that, just tell him to click the, "Don't send" button.

ok, this is what you have to do to turn that off:

click start, right click my comp./ properties/ advanced/ error reporting button/ just untick the box where it say's turn off, but add a check mark in the box that say's warn me though of an error.
