System error on ububtu 12.04 dual boot


Chaps, I kept getting this message on my laptop screen:
"System program problem detected. DO you want to report the problem now?"
I usually close it, but the moment I do it, it comes back again. It is sometimes accompanied by another message that goes:
"SOrry ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error. If you notice further problems try restarting the computer."
If I click on show details I get the 2 attached screenshots.
Can anybody help me to understand what the error is about and how to resolve it please? It keeps coming up all the time and it's getting quite annoying
thanks

thanks I had a look at the links, so it looks like the culprit is teamviewer? The second link goes through the process of removing that error message, but I wonder, is it a good thing to do? What if something else, a more serious error occurs, there won't be any way I will know about it.
Also, how bad is this teamviewer error? DOes it compromie some other process or something? What's odd though is that the error occurs even when teamviewer is off
thanks

Apport allows all kinds of crash reports to be sent to developers. Disabling it won't harm your computer in any way (I have always removed it on my box because I find unexpected popup windows *extremely* annoying.) And if a serious error occurs, it's more likely your whole system that will crash (without notice, even with Apport enabled.)

About teamviewer, I don't use it so I can't say much, but the error really doesn't seem that bad (can't get distribution-specific information from lsb_release.)
