You might get more replies by post this in the Helproom click here

You'll have to tell them what operating system you are using, Windows XP, Windows 98?

I'm terribly sorry, you're already in Helproom, my fault, I had two tabs open thinking one of them was Speakers corner, still what OS are you using?

He will onlt show his head when there as been an error in a program if it has stoped responding or gemerated an exeption fault,so if you have had these the problem lies with the app,you could check the error log and see what program made the doctor appear.

To see what the doctor is on about, Start, Run,
drwtsn32, OK. Highlight an error and click View.

thanks have just done the start run thing and this is what is says a log file path, a crash dump path, number of errors to save 10, then the circle marked mini is highlighted, then at the bottom where it says application errors there is nothing and as such the view button is greyed out sorry hope this makes more sence to you than it does to me thanks for your help so far

In Dr Watson, in the Options box, clear the Visual Notification box.

thanks again graham the visual notification box is unchecked the only three boxes with checkmarks in are dump all thread contexts, append to existing log file & create crash dump file

I think you need help from higher up! From googling it may be a symptom of malware/virus/hijacker. This will boot you into peak viewing time.

what anti virus, firewall software do you have?

Do you have any spyware software installed ie adaware, spy-bot?
