Dr Watson Post Mortem Debugger will often (always after I try to open a file folder or when I try to open a video file in VLC) pop up with an error report window saying "Dr. Watson Post Mortem Debugger has encountered a problem and needs to close".

Whenever I hit 'send' or 'don't send' the computer locks up and freezes, and I'm forced to shut down the computer and start it back up again. This does not happen every time I open a folder or open a movie file but it happens pretty often I'd say a couple times a day. I haven't made any system changes, and I can't recall the last new installation I made (which means it was a long time ago). I think this problem has been going on for the past few weeks.

Is there any way I can fix this?

Let's try this.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, click Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.
