Culprits for this error are usually Internet Explorer, AVG or any other antivirus programs, most probably "Office 2007-10"
 
It is basically an "Application Error Reporting Tool", to disable it use DWReportee value of 1 to following registry keys:
 
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftPCHe althErrorReportingDW
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftPCH ealthErrorReportingDW
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftPCHealthErro rReportingDW
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftPCHealthErr orReportingDW
 
In case of "Office"
 
Go to Regedit.exe.
 
Search and click this registry link "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftOffice10.0Common"
 
In Edit menu, point to New and click DWORD Value.
 
Type DWNeverUpload.
 
Double click "New Value" and type "1".
 
Apply the settings.
 
 
 
Hope that works!!
