Dr.Watson crashing my machine

Dr.Watson crashing my machine

I do not know if my machine is crashing because of Dr.Watson, or if Dr.Watson is appearing because my machine is crashing. All I know is that windows explorer keeps crashing and this Dr.Watson fella, whom I never invited onto my computer keeps popping up.

I saw on the microsoft site that this is actually meant to happen which seems ridiculous. I found drwatson.exe on my computer, I would delete it but that would probably cause more problems.

Any advice?

RE: Dr.Watson crashing my machine

Dr Watson is the result of the crash, not the cause and is built into all versions of Windows.

You will need to tell us more about explorer crashing. Any error messages? etc
