    Hi jimmytop,

    All three apps are associated with error debugging and reporting. Iedw.exe focuses on Internet Explorer Error Reporting, while the other two address general program errors. Of the three, only drwtsn32.exe should be placed in the Protection List with permission to terminate other protected apps (and possibly Access Physical Memory). I believe the other two only require permission to execute via the Security List.

    If you would rather disable these apps, follow these instructions: How to disable Dr. Watson for Windows, How to disable or redirect Internet Explorer error reporting, and Enable/Disable Error Reporting in Windows XP.

    Nick
