Just-In-Time Debugger is an application that opens Visual Studio after a program crashes. It allows a programmer to debug the program. The average user does not need Just-In-Time Debugger and can disable it by making some changes in the Windows registry. It is important that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Once you've disabled Just-In-Time Debugger, you will not receive any pop-up messages when an application has a problem.
