Is there a way to turn off the "Windows is checking for a solution to the problem..." pop up?

How do you disable the "helpful and informative" box that pops up and tells you that, "Windows is checking for a solution..." whenever a program locks up? I'm using Windows 7, btw.

Yes, apparently you can turn it off.

Disable “Windows is checking for a solution…” message after a program crashes

"In Windows Vista:
Go to Start > All Programs > Maintenance > Problem Reports and Solutions
In the Problem Reports and Solutions window, click Change settings > Advanced settings > Turn off problem settings

In Windows 7:
Click on the Action Center (white flag) icon on your taskbar > Change Action Center settings > Problem reporting settings (almost at the end) > Never check for solutions"
