    Hi all,

    I just ran msconfig from my run dialog box and it gave me the msconfig. In the startup tab there is an entry called Kernel fault and its command is

    %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k


    What is this?? And is this really needed?? Replies will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    This comes after an improper shutdown, dumps the memory into a file, not needed if your PC's working fine.
