    My PC was shutting down right after Windows XP Pro came up. Regprot asked whether to allow dumprep.

    I tried several things and finally put dumprep in Process Guard.

    My system seems to be working ok for the moment.

    I searched the internet and found a recent XP forum on it, but it didn't explain it.

    I think dumprep is a Windows file and Windows seemed to regenerate it if I deleted it.

    Do you think something else was running off of dumprep?

    Dumprep and a version of itself in the Windows prefetch folder at first.

    As far as I am aware dumprep is the programme that creates the error file when there is an XP BSOD and might be related to Dr Watson. drwtsn32.exe in the windows\suystem32\ folder
    Maybe placing drwatson on the PG list would help.

    drwtsn32.exe was already protected, but drwatson.exe was not. I protected that also.

    In Process Guard I noticed that three global hooks had been prevented on ctlmon.

    In the log dumprep is trying to gain suspend access on luall.exe which is Sysmantic Live Update.

    I probably put luall.exe in Process Guard and dumprep can not access it.

    I am going to uninstall my Norton processes and reinstall them. A lot of my current problems trace to Norton processes.
