Not the DR. Watson thing.

Do a HJT and post your log.

no, dr watson debugger is part of windows, my friend had this problem.

some trojans sometimes mask as this app, but its highly unlikely.

Alot of people do get confused about Dr.Watson, because it's a stupid name, and sounds like spyware. Here read this.. http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d....mspx?mfr=true

This is all Dr.Watson is..
