What is wermgr.exe?

Part of Windows Problem Reporting by Microsoft

What is it?

The error reporting feature enables users to notify Microsoft of application faults, kernel faults, unresponsive applications, and other application specific problems. Microsoft can use the error reporting feature to provide customers with troubleshooting information, solutions, or updates for their specific problems.
Description of wermgr.exe from Microsoft
Windows provides crash, non-response, and kernel fault error reporting by default without requiring changes to your application. The report will include minidump and heap dump information if required. Applications instead use the WER API to send application-specific problem reports to Microsoft. Because Windows automatically reports unhandled exceptions, application should not handle fatal exceptions. If the faulting or not-responding process is interactive, WER displays a user interface informing the user of the problem. An application is considered unresponsive if it does not respond to Windows messages for five seconds while the user is trying to interact with the application. The error reporting system sends all data to Microsoft through the Internet.
