OK, I was hoping it would be a little more helpful with some reference to what might have set it.

It may be that there has been some OS setting changed to initiate this check, see this link about it and how it is set or conversely removed, http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2008/03/04/what-is-dumprepexe-why-is-kernelfaultcheck-dumprep-0-k-in-msconfig-startup/. Your System Startup and Recovery setting may have been set to do a Kernel Memory Dump.

The main thing it doesn't look to be maliciously set as I can't see a purpose for this if it were set maliciously.
