WHERE TO FIND ERROR REPORTS ON WINDOWS XP, 7, 8

I was having an issue today. An xp computer that I was on kept on crashing. Yes I know xp is no longer supported. Even so I got in touch with a true geek of the trade. As if I am not one… and he requested an error report. I told him.. I had no idea where to find that on xp… After laughing at me… then calling his friends over and having a group laugh sesssion they told me where to find it for xp, 7 and 8.

It seems in xp there was a dr watson folder that stored these dumps… its a log file that can be found here
