additional info on my watson debugger dilemma.....it seems to only mess with my external HD and only when viewing a folder/video and/or listening to tunes.when i select ''take no action'' from the autoplay option box,no watson.also,it seems that i can drag the message box out of the way and continue about my business,but lord help me if i switch folders....i get frozen and must shut it down(the ext hd).watson is more of an inconvinience(spell help)more than anything at this stage.i have read more dire circumstances and wouldnt mind waiting for those more urgent issues to be resolved.btw,you guys and gals fncking rock!!!!!!!!!!!hopefully you all are being rewarded somehow.

a new delevopement....seems as though the sbag watson bug has run its course...no more debugging(unless its disguised itself).a new,somewhat more irritating problem ''avi chunk viewer'' has taken its place(a watson disguise?).ive looked into the chunk viewer and it seems to be trying to be ''interleaving'' a file(s).the chunk box states that an ''alternative avi splitter will now let a default one handle it''......first off,it doesnt state WHICH file needs splitting.2ndly,it doesnt state how i can assist in the splitting.3rdly and by far most annoyingly,after engaging a(usually a video)file,the information section on the left(which tells you size,name,details,etc will have NO info there.this is usually followed by problems and file(s)shutdown.the info i gathered on avi chunk is that its not malicious,just annoying.do i need this/what happens if i disable chunk box?as far as i can see,its not helping me and i was doing fine before i knew it existed.the timing of watson vanishing and this appearing is......puzzling.PLS HELP
