It is not advisable to disable Dr. Watson for any reason. It is needed for the stable running of your operating system. What error is Dr. Watson reporting, and what are you doing when you receive the error?

MS publishes a method to disable Dr Watson. Nowhere is it said that Dr Watson is necessary for the proper operation of XP.
For those who don't like editing the Registry, here is a simple Registry file that will carry out the operation. Create a new text file and copy into it the following 3 lines:
Name the file, say, drwatsondisable.reg
Double-click this file and make the change to the Registry.
Dr Watson may be re-enabled by :
Start > Run > drwtsn32 -i <Enter>

In reality I have never found it to be useful. Your mileage may vary.
