Does anyone know if Dr. Watson is available and accessible on Home Premium Vista and, if so, how to get to it?

I did a search of all files, indexed or otherwise, but nothing turned up. My settings to allow me access to hidden system files, but not to the deeper level. Should I change my setting and try the search again?

Hi Monty,

Thanks so much for the info and the link. I left MS a little feedback on the subject. :huh: Sigh. I'm really having trouble getting used to all the changes between XP and Vista. Oh well.

Hope all is well down in Oz, one of my favorite places in the world. :huh:

It's imperative in Vista to keep all of your drivers and updates up to date.

Have you been down under?

Sure have! :huh: Spent 5 of the most wonderful weeks of my life wandering around about 20 years ago. Probably one of my biggest regrets in life was not taking advantage of a program back in the 1960s where Oz would actually have paid my way to emigrate there from the U.S.

I do, indeed, keep Vista updated, but thanks for the reminder about the drivers. One thing I appreciate learning here is to download drivers only from the original mfgrs.
