Dr Watson Problem

I seem to be having a Dr. Watson error similar to other users. When I try to access icons on the desktop (My Computer, Windows explorer, etc.) I receive an error that reads 'Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger has experienced an error and must close'. I'm able to gain access to programs through the Start button. Not sure what my next step is, I noted that some users have been asked to submit HiJacker logs, but I have no clue how to do this.

What I am going to have you do is, download HijackThis. Then post the logfile here for it to be analyzed, by either myself or someone who knows how to analyze HijackThis logs.

To post a correct HijackThis log follow these directions:

1) Download HijackThis 1.99.0 from http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/

2) Create a new folder on your Hard Drive named HJT. (Instructions on how to do this, will be posted later in this post)

3) Double-Click on HijackThis.exe and click the "Scan" button

4) After the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will turn into a "Save Log" button. Press it, and save the log.

5) A notepad window will come up. Copy ALL of the contents from the logfile into a new thread on the forums.

6) Wait, and soon a person who analyzes HijackThis logs will reply to your log.


How to Create a new Folder on your Hard Drive

* Navagate to your C:\ drive.
* Right click inside of the C:\ drive
* A menu with the choice "New" will pop up
* Hover over "New" and select "Folder" from the sub-menu that pops up.
* Rename the Folder HijackThis
* Drag HijackThis into the new folder.


If you follow these steps, you will make our job alot easier!
