    Is it the same programs over and over? Or is it ALL programs??

    Were the system updates done lately including service packs? (SP3 fixed a few bugs that maybe the cause, I have heard 4 did the same)

    And are you running any flavor of Norton software? (Certain versions of NAV and Tools have been known to cause this)

    Finaly is it a Dell machine? (Factory setup had this problem)

    i have NAV 2004. to me it seems random but windows media player does it quite often, bit torrent, mozilla, some others.

    all I want to do is override it.

    not a dell and all critical updates installed.

    auto protect has always been disabled. I guess i would have to uninstall it?

    could someone tell me what causes that and what it means windows is doing? it happens every time i pause windows media player and walk away.


    what can i do to actually close a program that is effected this way?

    Dr. Watson can be a little annoying at times, but there's solution. You can turn it off. The behaviour of Dr Watson is controlled by:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug

    The contents of the REG_SZ value, Auto, controls how Dr Watson operates:

    0: Displays a message box informing the user of an application error.
    1: (default) Causes the debugger to start automatically.

    You can disable Dr Watson completely by deleting the AeDebug key. To re-enable it, type:

    drwtsn32 -i

    at the command prompt.

    Please note: All numeric values are shown in decimal notation.
