This article explains How to enable error reporting disabled by Group policy
Users may notice a problem while experiencing blue screen error on their system but the system has error reporting completely disabled through the Group Policy of their IT administrator. By default, error reporting for application and system errors is enabled on clients running Windows. If error reporting has been disabled via Group Policy, then a system will not record any minidumps for analysis. The following link from Microsoft pertains to Windows XP, Windows Error Reporting and Group Policy Settings - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490841.aspx . It can be used as a reference for your customer’s IT administrator if they decide to allow Windows Error Reporting on the system in question.
