Windows 7: Experiencing high ping or low resources?

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Experiencing high ping or low resources?

Since installing Windows 7 I have had seemingly sporradic high pings (it is more likely to be every 30 hours as thats when Windows Error Reporting starts). I believe this is due to Windows Error Reporting sending error reports back to HQ. Tonight I had about 30 instances in task manager of wermgr.exe running!

QueueReporting Windows Error Reporting This scheduled task runs the %windir%\system32\wermgr.exe ��queuereporting command when you log on to a user account. This scheduled task also runs every 30 hours to process Windows Error Reporting data.
As soon as they stopped the ping returned to normal. I have set the task in task schedular to only run if the computer has been idle for 1 hour. Which usually in my case would mean overnight as I use it a lot during the day.

To change it in Task Scheduler, open control panel. Type in "schedule" in the search box and click on "Schedule Tasks" in the results that appear. The task scheduler should appear.

Navigate to:
Task Scheduler Library
Windows Error Reporting

In the lower middle panel, click on the Conditions tab. Tick the box which says "start the task only if the computer is idle for: <number>". Select a number you wish (I chose an hour). And then tick the next two boxes. This should now only let WER activate after 1 hour of idleness.
