wer.exe keeps appearing on my screen and the system is running very slow. I also am unable to delete programs. Can anyone tell me what wer.exe is. Thankyou

Does this help? Note that it seems to be widely regarded as a virus, but I'm not 100% confident this is the case.

If it is caused by a faulty windows file then, in the Run (XP) Search (Vista/7) box

Type

sfc /scannow

press Ok

windows will search for and replace missing or corrupt windows files, this will take a while to complete.
