Configure Default consent

This setting determines the consent behavior of Windows Error Reporting. If Consent level is set to "Always ask before sending data", Windows will prompt the user for consent to send reports. If Consent level is set to "Send parameters", the minimum data required to check for an existing solution will be sent automatically, and Windows will prompt the user for consent to send any additional data requested by Microsoft. If Consent level is set to "Send parameters and safe additional data", the minimum data required to check for an existing solution as well as data which Windows has determined does not contain (within a high probability) personally identifiable data will be sent automatically, and Windows will prompt the user for consent to send any additional data requested by Microsoft. If Consent level is set to "Send all data", any data requested by Microsoft will be sent automatically. If this setting is disabled or not configured then consent will default to "Always ask before sending data".
