    My first thought is to remove drwtsn32.exe from 'Run' or 'RunOnce' in your registry. It's probably there under Current_User or Local_Computer. If you've never edited the registry then post back and I'll give you more detail on it. :)

    OK, I found some info for you. Check here in your registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AeDebug. Find the 'Debugger' value and set the auto value to '1' -- in theory this will stop the annoying error message.

    Go to Start->Run, type 'regedit' (no quotes) and Enter that. From there it's just a tree structure. There's a ton of stuff there, but just follow the order of what I posted previously.

    You should have at least reached CurrentVersion without any problem. If you did and AeDebug wasn't there, then we'll have to look for another way to remove it. You may as well check under Current_User down to CurrentVersion and look for Run or RunOnce. Look for drwtsn.exe there and delete it if you find it.

    Hi Muzikool!

    I've been having the same DrWatson Postmortem Debugger and I followed your instructions:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AeDebug. Find the 'Debugger' value and set the auto value to '1'

    But, should I fix any of the other values in the registry? Also, should I do anything with Drwtsn32.exe or Drwatson.exe in the registry?

    Thanks!
    Tara

    hmm... I think Virgin Media might sue the owners of that website coz their logo looks very similar to VM's. :p
