    To disable Error reporting
    control panel >adminastritive tools services
    double click "error reporting" - mark "disable"
    ok

    as for the usb popup - never experienced nor heard of it - this is not normal

    What have you got plugged into the usb port(s)?

    Whatever it is, it sounds like somethings polling the usb connection on a regular basis and then going back into standby mode until the next time.

    It also has to be a usb 2 device plugged into a usb 1 port for that tooltip to appear.

    Quick 'n dirty way out is to nip down the shops and buy yourself a cheap PCI usb 2 card and plug the usb 2 device(s) into that instead.

    Yep, just as I suspected. You have fast USB 2.0 devices plugged into slow USB 1.1 ports.
    I get the exact same things popping up when I plug my USB 2.0 flash drive into my PC.

    So I've already given you the solution...
