No problem.

So, do you know why exactly this happened?? I mean I'm sure it wasn't normal for Dr Watson to be that huge right?! Or is that common?

You can stop it if you do not mind using the registry editor

The registry contains all the information about windows and a few other things and it is what a PC refers to when it starts

The registry editor allows you to make changes. If you make a mistake then you are looking at re-installing windows in some cases

Perhaps you can hope it does not happen again, but you know what to do if it does
