Unter mein Windows XP Home+Service Pack 2 im Ordner System32 hab ich die datei drwatson.exe Beschreibung:Win. Fehlererkennungsprogramm 27,6 KB groß und eine drwtsn32.exe Programmbeschreibung: DrWatson Postmortmem -Debugger 46 KB groß, die Datein sind doch ungefährlich wa oder?
When I start computer a message appears that Dr.Watson has detected an error. When I clik to report I am informed that I must be on line but the sign on window is not functional. It blocks all programs.
It stops me from viewing pictures and movies. I have to close it in task manager, then it closes the folder and files I was trying to view. When I go back to try again, DrWatson32 again freezes my computer and I continue the cycle of shutting it off, trying to view files, it closing all open applications, etc.
drwtsn32.exe mostly runs when i am trying to open some windows media files, may be becuz some files or corrupted when this happns explorer shuts down and is restarted again, it only happns with certain wma files.
Es gibt genug vertrauenswürdigere Programme als ein Debugprogramm von Microsoft! Und dieses hier verursacht nur probleme! ich kann z.b. eine videodatei nicht anwählen, weil sich dann sofort diese exe öffnet und mein Desktop abschmiert. Aber herkömmlich löschen kann ich es nicht...Windows scheint das automatisch wiederherzustellen.
It's an insufferable wannabe busybody symptom of DCS* that starts up when some other app is crashing, just so it can crash too. On the rare occasion that it doesn't crash, it will provoke MyCrudSoft's web site to open and blame the crash on some application that wasn't even running, or may not even be installed on your PC, just to pass the buck. *DCS = Disobedient Computer Syndrome, in which your PC will hunt down any piddly little excuse to do anything other than the task you're trying to accomplish.

it gets in the way and i think its a virus, because i never seen it before now it pops up with an error, and i just closed it out and explorer.exe started working again so theres something wrong with this prog
Just some stupid Micro$oft debugging program. Whoever named it is sick, but no problems here. If it really takes all your cpu, either your processor sucks, or its been reinstalled by a virus/trojan/backdoor.
program conflict both versions
Download HiJackThis (search it with yahoo). Open HiJackThis and click Scan and save log file. Copy and paste the log file to www.HiJackThis.de and it will say if you have ANY unsafe or unneeded files in your registry and help you get rid of them.

sometimes when i work in certain maps my windows freezes and a window opens that say that drwtsn32.exe must be shut down, when i open taskman i can close it down, after that there is a "shutdown" like if i shutdown explorer.exe but it reloads almost instant and then i can use windows like always even though all the windows has bin closed. i recently changed name on the file in system32 and windows works...
This is from windows help, so i guess drwtsn.exe is NOT a virus, but it can be sometimes anoying: "Dr. Watson (Drwtsn32.exe) is installed in your system folder when you set up Windows. The default options are set the first time Dr. Watson runs, which can be either when a program error occurs or when you start Dr. Watson yourself."
Drwtsn writes down some system information in the moment of a crash. What else it does, i don´t know, i think it sends the Info to MS. I think it wouldn´t really be necessary for the system but normally it does no harm. Though it has some problems with some xvid codecs. So if it´s crashing, while u try to watch some movie, try to uninstall your xvid-codec.
Haven't seen it in the task manager before, now it pops up, takes over 200mbs of ram and 75%+ cpu, got on my nerves. Windows has been getting on my nerves for ever since i started using it...Installed ubuntu yesterday and am a lot happier now.
Not a dangerous process. Windows process that starts up when another program crashes. If it's overusing system resources it can usually be sorted with a good registry fixing utility. Some spyware can disguise itself as drwtsn32 but don't get worried if it only shows up when another program crashes, that process is most likely a genuine windows process
It seems to be essential as i have only noticed it when internet explorer stops responding. However, it has started doing this an awful lot when it never did before. So maybe it is dr watson causing this.
The (uninfected) drwtsn32.exe is not dangerous, but it is also not essential. Those with the "crashing movie/image folder" try 1) disable preview 2) uninstall crappy video codecs (esp. "packs"), it's usually those that crash but show up as explorer crashing since explorer asks them to generate a preview. Disabling or deleting dr.watson will only make it harder to identify how programs really fail - generally if you don't to resolve your crash with MS support or are capable of identifying problematic DLLs out of such a log yourself, you don't "need" dr. watson.

Well.... i have Drwtson i noticed it comes up alot if i get a virus.. And im thinking it is a virus right now i know its a windows core file but its a stupid program i got a top of the line Gaming computer with a 3.2 ghz quadcore cpu and it slows it down with 4 gb ram and 1 tg hard drive.... dont understand but it makes thinks slow i cant even move a song and explorer is like freezing... i close drwtsn out processes and my comp is like abullet... so if you all want help look in good How to get rid of dr.wtsn.exe and delete it outa system 32
i saw a new textdokument on my computer and when i opened it i got a warning that drwtsn32.exe needed to be shut down and then my pc freezed for a min and then was just working fine. I got two drwtsn32.exe running, one at almost 8000kb and one at almost 3000kb. Havent noticed any change on the computer or slow down. So im not relly sure about this but i just wanted to give my info to be of some help :)
mine is reporting errors occaisionaly for certain folders (lit.2or3) on an external drive. at other times when there has been no crash for at least halg an hr it try to acess system memory and the internet.
as others have said, it's a windows app which will autorun when certain other apps crash (usually video related I think). it can hog resources so that if you try to just reopen the crashed program it is more likely to crash again and then you have another drwtsn running as a result of that. then you're in this cycle of crashes. if this happens then just walk away for a while, come back, and end process on any drwtsn processes still running then you should be fine. you should generally have no need and no desire to get rid of the drwtsn32.exe entirely.
like many have said, it is a program debugger that gives crash analysis to microsoft, it comes preinstalled on windows XP and cannot be removed, it will simply re-create itself. IF you are having trouble with it, run sfc -scannow from command, or run a windows repair.
This "Dr" is about as worthless as a real doctor, which is to say that its a complete waste of your time and money unless you happen to be bleeding to death. Someone needs to figure out how to remove this thing. It just gets in the way.

From what I can tell, it's a perfectly valid, though old, error reporter program there for users and those who fix the users problems. Not a virus unless overwritten, and probably not extrememly usefull unless you are known to make your computer crash. Haha.

i find that it auses the problems i get. example.. internet explorer stops responding.. then encounters an error and needs to close.. i go into task manager and end all the dr watson processes.. and my internet works again..
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308538 it says dr watson is a debugger for xp so mayb thats y it starts up when explorer crashed.the process ran for me 2 when i had a problem with a program called "Peer Guardian"(when it stopped responding)

drwtsn32.exe must be a virus. Coz it does mre harm than good. It has neva proven itself usefull 2 me. It only start poping up after i switch nvidia gpu to ati and when the error shows up that catalyst control centre needs .netframework 2.0 to run than this Dr. Watson window pops up and freezes my pc than i hav 2 ctrl+alt+del to close drwtsn32.exe in taskmanager.
It is a nuisance that has recently appeared on my system, freezes everything up (including the task manager) once a day, necessitating a reboot. Just one of those annoying Windows bugbears that should have been rewritten years ago.
It has real danger on windows XP service pack 3. When there's error on explorer, this program tries to terminate and close itself and computer freeze. This is not doctor watson, it's virus-making watson. Anyways, because of this i couldn't start my computer and had reinstalled my windows XP for many times.

When Windows Explorer crashes, it's followed by drwtsn crashing. My system hangs until I can go into ctrl-alt-del and end it. Sometimes I have to delete dumpprep (sp?) to regain control of my system. Wiindows is an inferior product.
Microsoft error debugger
Windows error debugger, totally safe.

Was Sie bei drwtsn32 Problemen tun können

Ein aufgeräumter Computer ist die beste Voraussetzung, um drwtsn32 Probleme zu vermeiden. Hierzu sollten Sie einen Malware-Scan durchführen, Ihre Festplatte aufräumen (mit cleanmgr und sfc /scannow), nicht mehr benötigte Programme deinstallieren, Autostart Programme überprüfen (mittels msconfig) und Windows Updates automatisch installieren. Denken Sie immer daran ein Backup oder zumindest einen Wiederherstellungspunkt zu erstellen.

Bei einem konkreten Problem überlegen Sie bitte, was Sie als letztes getan bzw. installiert haben, bevor das Problem das erste Mal auftrat. Nutzen Sie den Befehl resmon, um diejenigen Prozesse zu ermitteln, die Ihr Problem verursachen. Selbst bei schwerwiegenden Problemen sollten Sie anstatt einer Windows-Neuinstallation lieber eine Reparaturinstallation oder ab Windows 8 den Befehl DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth ausführen. Damit wird das Betriebssystem ohne Datenverlust repariert.

Zur weiteren Analyse haben sich folgende Programme als nützlich herausgestellt: Der Security Task Manager untersucht den aktiven drwtsn32 Prozess auf Ihrem Computer und zeigt anschaulich was der Prozess macht. Das bekannte Tool Malwarebytes Anti-Malware sagt Ihnen, ob die Datei drwtsn32.exe auf Ihrem PC lästige Werbung einblendet und so Ihren PC ausbremst.
