Windows 7: Is Wermgr.exe editing my registry normal?

29 Oct 2012   #1

Is Wermgr.exe editing my registry normal?

Hello Everyone,

I noticed three days ago that wermgr.exe has been editing my registry two separate times a day.

C:\Windows\System32\wermgr.exe Modify startup settings

I was wondering if this is normal because this has only started happening recently.

Thank you for your time and help.
