Windows 7: Adjust "Program has Stopped Working" Timer ???

Adjust "Program has Stopped Working" Timer ???

It has been my experience that Windows 7 Pro is quite a bit overzealous in popping up the "Program has stopped working" message box, leaving me with no option except to close the program and start over.

This can become quite annoying when editing photos, as it often occurs just as I call up the save-as dialogue; thus I lose all of my work and must start over.

It seems Windows will throw that message box in there when it is obvious the program has not stopped working.

Is there something I can do to limit this behavior or turn it off altogether ?

Thanks for reading.

I found this:

Disable Program Has Stopped Working Error Dialog in Windows • Raymond.CC

I followed the instructions and disabled that mess; hopefully doing so also stops Windows from prematurely taking the bits in her teeth and running through the bridle.

We shall see...

Thanks for reading.
