Last week I installed XP SP2 off CD sent by MS. Immediately had problems opening Internet Explorer (6.0.2900.1280). After using debug option, I get the message " DrWatson Postmortem Debugger.....", before Explorer eventually does open (sometimes).

I have installed and run both Ad-Aware se and Computer Associates Antivirus. Have also reinstalled XP SP2. No better, inspite of removing many umwanted nasties.

What is this "DrWatson Postmortem Debugger"? Is it a nasty as well?
