I'm having a problem with my XP system. When I start up windows, I get a Dr Watson Post mortem debugger needs to close. I ran Malawarebytes in safe mode and regular start up. Regular start up removed 2 items, but upon restart I still have the error. (I do realize that the Dr Watson issue is a windows component and is only an alert that there is a problem) I ran HiJackThis here are the results.
Can anyone help me out with this?

You can search your system for .dmp files, which should disclose just what the problem might be.

You could also take a look in Event Viewer for details of errors which demand attention.

I suggest that you remove the HJT data, since this is not a malware forum...and HJT is a malware tool. Leaving the data in your original post will most likely result in this thread being moved to the appropriate malware forum for resolving malware issues.
