Windows 7: Disable error messages (appcrash,dll,HardErrorMsg) regedit

Disable error messages (appcrash,dll,HardErrorMsg) regedit

How to disable all types or error messages (appcrash, dll initialization, hard error messages) through regedit (HKCU only).
I was wondering how to disable all types of error messages on windows (XP/7/8/8.1) through registry through HKCU only.
I know that on win 7/8 i can change
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting
DontShowUI to 1
and on win xp (is there any way to do this through HKCU instead HKLM?)
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting
ShowUi to 0
But this does not help with errors like "DLL Initialization failed", in order to fix these you have to set (any way to do in HKCU?)
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
ErrorMode to 2
However, I need everything done only through HKCU. Are there other ways to directly or indirectly disable all sorts of error messages, preferably through HKCU not HKLM?
Other question, if it is not possible to disable the error messages in other ways, could there be a way to make the machine shut down faster so that error messages are not even showed while the machine is shutting down.
I tried these on XP.
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop
AutoEndTasks to 1
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop
HungAppTimeout to 0
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop
WaitToKillAppTimeout to 0
It did help a little but still the error message manages to show up, unless you set
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
ErrorMode to 2
but, i need to make the changes through HKCU only.

Let us know when you're ready to fix the errors.


This is the top tech forums in history. We don't do band aids.

Elie welcome to the forum.

The way to fix error pop up messages is to fix the error causing them.
With the proper information from you they can be fixed.

Hello guys,
Thanks for the replies, however, the situation is quite complicated.
I indeed know which software is causing these errors, but it is limited and private coded, it needs to be ran on our computers all the time, it need to be on startup and obviously it has some bugs.
So theres nothing we can do about the software without investing a lot of money for fixing it.
Thats why i am for band aids as you say - workaround - to disable all of the error messages.
I am getting this kind of error on startup -

And this kind of error while shutting down (it would be dll initialization failed while shutting down error in english)

Is there any way to disable these in other way than setting (i would really prefer something through HKCU)
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
ErrorMode to 2

Why do these error messages have to be controlled by HKCU?

But the bottom line is that anything that occurs at a system level (would effect all users) will be controlled by a system level registry entry (HKLM).

I really think you are wasting your time with this. You need to deal with the errors rather then the error messages.
If you can answer my question a fuller description can likely be provided.

Hey, thanks for your reply.
If i had an access to HKLM, could you recommend using something more than

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
ErrorMode to 2

to disable all the error messages?
If yes, please let me know.

There is no way to disable all error messages. Many such are generated by the applications themselves and you have no control or even influence over that.

But what is the point? The error message isn't the problem, only the messenger. An application that puts up an error message has already failed, in most cases fatally.

Ok, let me rephrase that, how do you disable those which can be disabled? Any other ways except those that i mentioned?
I am aware that the message is only a messenger, however the software that is causing those errors is persistent, every time it crashes it is imediately started again, so in this case, the only problem is in fact error messages.
