I am having an issue with my laptop. Dr watson debugger keeps appearing (error message) and saying it needs to close, but it doesn't close. Instead immediately after clicking the okay button, no other programs open. The computer freezes up. The only thing I can do is (cntrl-alt-del) open the task manager and go to processes where dr watson appears on the list. I can end the dr watson process and then I am able to open some programs atleast until the error message appears again and I have to go to task manager again and end the dr watson process again. I have disabled the error reporting function and I have run spysweeper and mcafee. It seems that I am infected with startup registry viruses. I was able to delete the ntxh.exe when spysweeper detected it, but I beleive there are more problems because the dr watson problem is still occuring and internet explorer is bombarding my computer with porn and other bad sites.

I would appreciate any suggestions or help and I would be more than happy to provide more information about it, but I don't know what to say exactly as to what is relevant or not.

I have just signed up as a member and it looks like a great, well-founded site.

Thank you sincerely,
