I am getting an error message when I go into My Documents,that says DrWatson has detected a problem and must shut down, then everything freezes. I was told by someone that Dr Watson, although being part of XP, has an AceBot behind it. Is there someway to check this, and or nuetralize it if necessary?
Hi - Without thinking of Dr Watson , What Antivirus and Anti Malware programs do you run ?? I never rely on Dr Watson for full diagnostics or prevention - - Run a Disk Check on your C: drive in Windows XP:
Click Start and open My Computer
Right-click on C: and select Properties
Click on the Tools tab
Under Error-checking click the Check Now... button
Mark the box next to Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
When the message box pops up, click the Schedule disk check button and restart your computer
Once your computer restarts it will check the drive, don't press any keys so that it is allowed to do so
