Update:

The tutorial has been updated to be able to reset Reliability Monitor in Windows 7 automatically using a BAT file download.

Selectively remove error reports

Have you ever had an application crash and get the red cross in the reliability monitor. You know what the issue is (a buggy third party app say) but psychologically it annoys you being reported in the reliability monitor.

You don't need to do a full reset.
View Reliability History > View All Problem Reports (bottom of screen) > Highlight the problem in question > Right click - Delete

Could be slotted in to the tutorial if you consider it relevant Brink.
So simple but I only came across it recently!!!!!

You did indeed

Add: I find the reset procedure here doesn't always reset recent errors. The manual delete does.

Yeah, depending on how recent the error was, the error may still be happening and still being reported.

Just to add I had to unblock the file first for it to work correctly

Hello Danny,

Strange, you shouldn't have to unblock the BAT file first. Did you right click on the downloaded BAT file and click on Run as administrator, then on Yes for the UAC prompt?

Danny,

Strange. Are you logged in as an administrator and have UAC turned on, and what level if so?
