Can anyone confirm what "Dr Watson" is.

I've had this twice today.

Hello ansky

Thank you, I have read the links, am I correct in thinking, basically I have nothing to worry about?

The Dr Watson error message only happens when I am on the Amazon site.

It depends on what the message says and if it is Windows that is saying it. Is it the windows Doctor Watson and if so what exactly does it say?

The message I keep getting:

"Internet Explorer Has Encounted A Problem & Needs To Close"

I have had the above message 4 times, & DR Watson 3 times.

I have run:


Spybot S&D


Disc Cleanup

Dic Defragment

Apart from tracking cookies, all appear to be OK

I disabled it in the end.

The Internet Explorer problem and closing thing could be solved (hopefully) by either repairing Internet Explorer, updating it or using another browser instead, something like Firefox.
