dwwin.exe - application failed to initialize

#1
Hey all,
Every time i shut down i get a popup window saying that dwwin.exe - The application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down.

When i look in the event log i get:-

Application popup: dwwin.exe - DLL Initialization Failed : The application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at
Blah de blah.

Incidentally the link tells me nuffin, The Event ID for this is 26.

Any Ideas? Even how i could find out what DLL its talking about?

dwwin is DrWatson, a built-in debugger component in Windows.

Go into regedit and open HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENT VERSION\RUN and for dwwin.exe, change the value so it looks like "start /belownormal dwwin.exe /init"

It's normally a message that should be suppressed, but it's not happening. I've hear a few things (one is that it's somehow related to Zone Alarm) but I'm not absolutely sure.

Try this instead:
go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CURRENT VERSION\AeDebug and change "Auto" to 0. If it's already 0, delete the value under Debugger.

Hmm, im at work now but i did notice in that article that it says...

AeDebug

Value Name = Auto
Type = String (REG_SZ)
Data Value = 1 or 0. (Default is 1)

Where my one was set to 0....
