Hi All,

I have a machine with Win XP. Everytime i try to do anything, xplore, control panel, my documents etc, i get the following error:

Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger.
Windows Has A Problem And Needs to shutdown!

Everything freezes, and in task manager i end the Drwatson process, and everything frees up, until i try to browse or execute something. Then I am back to square one. :thumbsup:

I have a feeling it may :flowers: have something to do with a program wkssb.exe

Please help :trumpet:

Thanks for that info ,

But that doesn't sort the problem.
How can i kill the Dr Watson process.
If i can stop that from popping up, i'll be sorted.

Cheers
Brian.

This MSKB article describes how to disable our good friend Dr.Watson.

Hope this solves your problem,
