I keep getting a message "Windows has en[bleep]ered etc, etc, and must close - Send Don't Send

This has been happening quite often, usually when in the middle of a program. I am using a Pentuim 4, 3.2 gig speed, 1 gz of ram, 2 hard drives with pleanty of room. It is becoming very frustrating especially since I am using Pinnacle to import videos. This also came up when using Windows Movie Maker.

Click start then run then type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace system files, you need the XP CD and you get a blue progess bar

Apply the most suitable setting for error reporting

1. Click Start.
2. Right-click My Computer, then click Properties.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Click Error Reporting.

To configure the error reporting feature:

• By default, error reporting is enabled. To disable it, click Disable error reporting. To continue to be notified when errors occur without being prompted to report the errors, click to select the But notify me when critical errors occur check box.

• Specify whether you want to use error reporting for the Windows operating system, for programs, or for both Windows and programs.
• To report errors only for selected programs, click Choose Programs, click All programs in this list, and then click the programs that you do not want to include.

• To add a program that is not listed, click Add, type the name of the program, or click Browse to find the program on your computer.

• If many programs are listed, you may want to create an exclude list.

In the Do not report errors for these programs box, click Add, type the name of each program that you want to exclude from error reporting, or click Browse to find the program on your computer.

There is a virus named dr.watsoon.exe, to be absolutely certain you are not affected with this, go here


Run the programmess as advised then post the Hijack This log to the malware section
