Hey guys! Any ideas on this:

Whenever I try to log into one of my secondary windows accounts (for example, my wife's or guest's) explorer keeps crashing and reloading. Dr. Watson is to blame (I'm 99% sure), but what's causing him to act so irrationally? My account (admin) works fine...I've rooted out any spyware etc (as far as I know). I even ran (with much difficulty) HJT in my secondary account and it matches mine.
Thanks...any help is much appreciated.
J.

Dr Watson is built into Windows...it's a debugging program that prompts you when something closes because of errors..(you know, that send report, don't send report dialog box that comes up? That's Dr. Watson)...the problem is, something is causing Dr. Watson to act irrationally, constantly shutting down windows explorer and restarting it, over and over...i can't start any programs unless I stop dr watson in the ctr-alt-delete processes box. then start the program before dr watson starts back up, internet explorer will just shut down as well. I tried deleting the secondary accounts and making new ones, but the problem still persists...which is weird....any ideas?
