I found a lot of things in Help and Support.
Type in Report Problem Settings.
This is not a cop out but their is just to many things to check. You don't know when this happened so in my opinion using a restore point back a little time might solve your problem. Going back to far might not be worth all the updating for you. I'm still thinking; what ever that is worth.

Thanks LBB. I don't think System Restore will help either. This could have happened some time ago as it is not something I would normally check. I'l go through your suggestions. I may be gone some time...

Well I have got half a fix. Selling the following registry key to zero enables WER.

Unfortunately I still can't change it through the control panel.

I had hoped that "Don't show UI" would do it if set to zero but no luck.

That's a thought. Although I don't see that will get me any further forward. I will give it a try tomorrow.

You would need to delete both the keys you find under

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsErrorReporting

and reboot the system

You should be good to go.

You could run SFC /SCANNOW it can't hurt.
I really don't understand why one would have to be changing things in the registry to get such a simple thing fixed.
