Missing Dumprep.exe

    My IE7 is starting to freeze, and in the Task Manager I noticed that
    Dumprep.exe then uses a lot of CPU.

    After reading through article 899870 I then tried to disable dumprep.exe,
    but can not find it in either the System Configuration Utility or the
    Register.

    Should I try to re-install it and then disable it?

    Can't get accurate help without knowing what version of Windows you
    have. In the meantime, try these troubleshooting procedures:

    Run Internet Explorer 7 in 'No Add-Ons' mode:

    If you have Vista: Start > type Internet Explorer in the Start Search
    box > click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)

    If you have XP: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
    Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)

    Alternatively, you can create a shortcut on your desktop with the
    following target path:

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

    If no problems occur in 'No Add-Ons' mode, the problem is caused by one
    of the add-ons that load together with Internet Explorer 7.

    Problems with Internet Explorer can also be caused by by malicious
    software ('malware') that has been installed on your computer.
