    Everytime I try to right click on a program my computer freezes. I can bring up the task manager and when I close drwtsn32.exe my computer finally returns to normal. I tried disabling it but then I get an explorer.exe application error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Here are two ways to disable Dr. Watson for Windows XP
    1)
    Start/Run Type: regedit OK
    Navigate to

    Hkey_local_machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Aedebug

    Click on and edit the debugger value delete the text in the popup box referring to Dr. Watson followed by some values which look like: drwtsn32 -p %ld -e %ld -g

    Click on OK

    Dr. Watson is now disabled

    2)

    Disabling Dr. Watson via the GUI Interface:

    Start/Run Type: drwtsn32.exe

    Clear all check marks from Options boxes.

    This will disable Dr. Watson from running.

    Thanks for the help. But, I did what you said and now when I right click on a program I get an explorer.exe application error,

    The instruction at "0x013a415b" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written". Click on OK to terminate the program.
