The Werfault.exe process is a part of Windows Error Reporting in Windows Vista. This feature allows Microsoft to monitor and solve problems in the Vista operating system, features and applications, and enables users to send error data and receive updates and solutions. The werfault.exe program allows the developers to find and address errors to improve the quality of the product in the long run.
You can opt to turn the feature on or off here depending on your preference. If you want to use the feature, you can customize it according to your requirements. If you do not want certain executable files or programs to send error reports, you may also create a block list. Let us now have a look at the steps that you can follow to customize Error Reporting on Windows Vista.
You should keep in mind that many malware programs can show up on your system as seemingly legitimate files by using file names that are very similar to those of legitimate files. Whenever you are in doubt about a particular file, always scan your system using a reliable antivirus and anti-spyware program.
You should also keep in mind that sometimes a false positive report is generated for a perfectly valid file. This is true when the executable file is fairly new to the market or if the virus definition database hasn’t been updated in quite a while. This is the reason why, you must keep your antimalware up-to-date at all times.
To further avoid errors, you must also conduct regular registry scans. This will help avoid unsightly and unwanted registry bloating issues. Regular registry scanning plus protection from infection and intrusion paired with safe surfing practices can keep you and your machine secure.
Driver Update: Some EXE errors are related to driver problems such as obsolete, outdated or incompatible drivers. A driver update tool is recommended to scan your system for corrupted and outdated drivers and to ensure that all your drivers stay up-to-date.
Statistics show there is a 94% chance that your computer has system errors.
