    I have Windows XP Home, SP3, IE7, OE6 AND Dr.Watson, Microsoft`s medical marvel who keeps vigil over my computer tantrums at all times and flashes up an Error panel with options to Debug - Send report to MS or Cancel.

    I have read dozens of items on the net about this mad medic. They vary from, rubbish - get rid of it, uses too much MB - get rid of it, it`s out of date - scrap it, to - it does a very good job detecting program errors and taking action.

    Some say Delete it completely, some say just Disable it using ;-

    TO DISABLE DR.WATSON DEBUGGING

    START/RUN, enter REGEDIT, press OK
    Working from L/H panel, double click, then Rt. click, then double click EXPAND each one of the following in turn
    HKEY_LOCAL-MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENT VERSION/AEDEBUG
    then double Lt.click AUTO on R/H hand panel
    Change value 1 to 0, then CLOSE. All done, Dr.Watson debugging now disabled.

    Well ! all this is very confusing.
    What is your opinion on Dr.Watson - Do you employ him or have you sacked him ?
