I have a problem with Dr Watson Post Mortem debugger popping up every time I try to go into anything in My Computer. As a result, the PC locks up and I can't access A or C drive, Recycle Bin, etc.

No problem accessing internet or e-mail. I have windows xp.

How can I resolve this problem.

Information about Dr. Watson

About Dr. Watson
How to decode Dr. Watson errors


Dr. Watson is a software utility included with Microsoft Windows that is used to help detect, decode and log errors that are encountered while windows or windows programs are running.

A user can run Dr. Watson by clicking Start / Run and typing "drwatson" and clicking ok. The Windows NT and 2000 Version of Dr. Watson can be ran by click Start / Run and typing "drwtsn32". When running Dr. Watson you should see either a new task on your toolbar or on your systray indicating that Dr. Watson is running in the background. If errors are frequently occurring run Dr. Watson to help get additional information about the error.

When Dr. Watson encounters an error the error is logged under the file "drwtsn32.log" or "user.dmp" when running Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000. When running Microsoft Windows 95, 98 or ME the file is logged with a .WLG file extension and stored under the \Windows\Drwatson or \Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\DrWatson folder. For example 10.wlg and drwtsn32.txt is an example of a Dr. Watson file.

Tip: If your computer is encountering errors often load Dr. Watson into the startup folder to load the program each time the computer boots.


Dr. Watson basic troubleshooting

If errors are being encountered with a specific program ensure that the latest software updates have been downloaded for that program.
Users running Microsoft Windows 95, 98 can double click the Dr. Watson icon on the systray to view errors and obtain a system snapshot of the computer. Additional detailed information can also be seen by clicking the View option and selecting the Advanced view.
Users running Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP can decode the error by reviewing our below instruction on how to decode Dr. Watson errors.
Verify that another program running in the background is not causing the problem by end tasking all TSR's. Additional information about TSR's can be found on document CHTSR.
If after following the above steps you continue to receive Dr. Watson errors attempt to reinstall the application you are running and/or contact the manufacturer or developer of the software program or computer.
How do I disable Dr. Watson in Windows NT?

Dr. Watson by default is always running on computers running Microsoft Windows NT. To disable Dr. Watson from removing it from the registry. Note: Please review our Registry page for additional information about the registry and its dangers.

Open the following folders and keys:


Locate and delete the key AeDebug.


The following information applies to users who are running Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP and viewing the drwtsn32.log file. Each Dr. Watson error is appended to the end of the drwtsn32.log file. Therefore you may need to scroll to the end of the file to determine the exact error.

Application exception occurred:
App: .\Release\Mcshield.exe (pid=508)
When: 11/3/2001 @ 13:54:08.489
Exception number: c0000005 (access violation)

The first portion of the drwtsn32.log file as show in the above example gives us information about the program, the time and the exception. As you can see from the above example this error is occurring in mcshield.exe, which is a part of McAfee Virus Scan. We next see the date and time when this error occurred and the exception number.

Unless the proper symbol is loaded on the computer you will be limited to the above information to determine what is causing the issue. As you can see from the below example the function has no symbols therefore you be unable to determine what function caused the error to occur. Additional information about symbols can be found on Microsoft's DDK page, Microsoft Q141465 or through your system administrator.

Users running other versions of Windows can view the Dr. Watson information by opening the Dr. Watson program (c:\winnt\system32\drwtsn32.exe NOT drwatson.exe) and viewing the diagnostics information and suggestions. A snapshot of the system configuration can also be seen by clicking the View option and selecting "Advanced View"
