DrWatson Postmortem Debugger Problem

When I first turn on my computer and click on Internet Explorer or click on a simple folder like My Documents the task bar would freeze. This usually happens randomly so I never know when to expect it. Sometimes the whole computer freezes though I'm still able to work with windows that is still on the restore down or maximized mode. It takes a long time to actually work again or it won't and I have to restart the whole computer.

There are times when I click on Internet Explorer and I suddenly get a message that the program isn't responding and asks me if I would like to send a report. After I get that, the window will still be open and blank. Then I get another message that says DrWatson Postmortem Debugger isn't responding and asks me if I'd like to send a report. As I get past that the program freezes. Though I've found a way for it all to fix, Ctrl+Alt+Delete. I go to task manger then click on Processes and find this name called drwtsn(sometime 32 will be beside it).exe and end the process. The task bar wipes itself clean and everything is back to normal.

This has happened more often now, and half the time I won't even be able to do anything on my computer.

Hi. I went to M$ and found this: http://support.micro...kb;en-us;308538
Take a look and see if it helps. If this is not the answer, go to M$, support and do a search. Multiple hits in the M$ knowledge base will be found.
