dwwin.exe ?

  phil.smith 18:51 07 Aug 2007

When I shut down my computer I get a little window appearing which says "dwwin.exe fails ....etc". I can't read it fully as it appears and disappears fairly quickly. The computer shuts down normally.

Does anyone know what this refers to please and can I stop it?

Thanks Mark

I went to your link and found about 200+ problems!!! As it only repairs 15 i wasn't sure if it would pick up dwwin.exe so I tried an sfc /scannow to see if this works.

Thanks again

Thanks - but I read on one site that you shouldn't disable Dr Watson.

Is it safe to do so?

You can safely ignore that Dr Watson 'warning'. ambra4's link gives you the solution.

Many thanks Technotiger and Ambra4 - will give it a try.
