Along with everyone else in here these days im having a problem with the Dr.Watson Postmortem Debugger error message as well. I read someone elses post about the same problem and used Add/Remove Program Files to remove toolbars but other than that i havent tried very hard to fix it yet... This way I have less of a chance of screwing my computer over. Ive scanned my computer with both Norton Antivirus and Ad-Aware, as well as made sure i have all the updates i need. Hopefully someone can tell me what and where to delete whatever is wrong with my system... Here is the Log file of my HJT scan. Thanks for the help.

Nothing obvious in your log, and those files referenced in the error log are legitimate Windows files.

Try System File Checker. Click Start -> Run, type SFC /SCANNOW Have you XP CD handy.

Well I did that, rebooted my computer and...... it didnt change a thing haha. So i guess ill give you a little more detail into what is going on... Basically my computer only freezes whenever i right-click on a folder in My Computer or even a desktop shortcut. It Freezes then a few seconds later a notice comes up about how Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger has had an error and blah blah blah. However I can still right-click other programs such as MSN Messenger and nothing bad comes of it. Anyways even after i tell the notice not to send the error report my computer will not unfreeze until I open up Windows Task Manager (CTL ALT DEL) and go into processes and shutdown the process Drwtsn32.exe and then everything works like it never even happened.... until i rightclick something again. Maybe this information will help spot a problem. Thanks Again
