Crash in Wermgr.exe

Although I’m overall still very happy with my laptop (MSI GT 70), there are in fact minor annoyances that keep popping up. One of them is the fact that the Windows Error Reporting application itself (Wermgr.exe) keeps crashing. Most notably after extended idling, during which the screensaver (blank screen) is active. Upon resuming there will be dozens of dialogs reporting something along these lines:

The instruction at 0xf3f3be3e referenced memory at 0xa2dac660. The memory could not be read

So what to do? Simply disable the Error Reporting Service:

Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

Type services.msc

Press Enter.

Scroll down to the Windows Error Reporting service. Double-click it, Stop it and Disable it.

That should help, although you won’t be able to submit error reports abouts crashed applications anymore. Well, that wasn’t working to begin with. As for the origins of this failure? I haven’t got a clue…
