About September 07, I began having problems with my computer. Windows explorer would close randomy, usually after closing programs or when I'm running many programs. It usually closes twice with no problems and restarts Windows Explorer. Then, after closing WExplorer twice, DrWatsonDebugger says its encountered a problem and closes. Then Everything freezes and I have to manually restart the computer. In December, I reset my computer back to factory settings and redid the whole computer. It did fine for about 4 weeks now and I have not seen it. Now here recently, It has came back and is doing it again. I have the report from DrWatson but have no clue how to fix it. Is there a program interfering with it? I havent recently installed any new programs...?

DrWatson Report
Attached File  drwatson.txt   63.61KB   94 downloads
^^^ Is also attached as a notepad file...

Anyone able to help figure out what the problem is?

Hi y0ud0ntkn0wjack, welcome to G2G.

The first thing you should do is run chkdsk against your hard drive to see if there are any file system problems.

Open My Computer.
Right click on drive: and select Properties (drive: is any drive)
Click on the Tools tab then the Check now button.
Check the "Automatically fix File System errors" box.

For C: you will get a window that says the check could not be performed ....
Do you want to schedule this disk check to run the next time you restart the computer?
Click on Yes.


If that doesn't help, do you per chance have Photoshop 7 installed? If so uninstall it and see if that fixes it. If yes, you can reinstall but don't make Photoshop the default program for images

Haven't seen the error since I have done that chkdisk. One other thing I stopped doing was allowing this HP DMA scheduler program to run. McAfee now blocks it from running and it hasn't did the error. Not sure which was causing the problem...
