Again, I am using my work computer because I can't open any programs on my PC.
I am getting the following messages when i first login to Windows Xp.
"Windows Explorer has experienced a problem and needs to close"
Then , when it asks me if I want to send the error to Microsoft, I click on "Don't Send" the following message comes up
"Dr. Watson posmortem debugger has experienced a problem and needs to close"
Again, I click on the "Don't Send" option, but now the computer freezes and I cannot open any program whatsoever.
When I try to click on any program to open it, the dreaded Dr. Watson debugger error message pops up again.
I can pull up my task manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL. I even tried to type explorer.exe to look for the regedt32.exe icon to fix the "file association" ( i had been instructed to do this before when I had this problem the first time) but when i got to the regedt32 file, i click on it, and it won't open. I am not sure what this is supposed to do, but it did not work.
I have also restarted the computer in safe mode to "Last Known Configuration" - this did not work.
I also restarted my computer in regular Safe Mode and did a system restore to a previous date, this did not work either,. I still keep getting the Windows Explorer and Dr. Watson Debugger error.
Additionally, while in safe mode, I was able to run every single function in Tune UP utilities2006 and I also ran a Scan from Ewido suite anti-virus and cleaned up whatever infections it found.
STILL, when I rebooted the computer, ID DID NOT WORK. I still get both errors. I can't open anything at all.
CAn someone please help????? It would be greatly appreciatted.
