1. Dr. Watson is a diagnostic tool that gathers information about your computer when a problem occurs with a program:
? Identifies the program that has a problem.
? Offers a detailed description of the cause.
? May provide a resolution for the problem.
? Dr. Watson is best used with reproducible faults. With intermittent faults, you may not be able to determine the cause of the fault.
Note: You do have the choices of "checking what the report contains <graphics to click> before the report is sent and to not send it at all but to simply use the report information to troubleshoot the problem yourself. Have you seen and clicked the hyperlink button "To see what data this error report contains, click here"?
2. Perhaps by submitting that information to the forum somebody will recognize it, but I don't thing there will be very many members familiar with reported details that Dr. Watson delivers on certain computers. Forum members would perhaps be more familiar with and more helpful concerning default Windows error messages that gets written on the screen instead.
3. Supplemental reading:
a. "How to Troubleshoot Program Faults with Dr. Watson (Q275481)".
b. And the section titled, Troubleshooting Application Faults with Dr. Watson, in the TechNet article "Troubleshooting MS Windows 98."
Every now and then(not sure of the frequency)IE6 pops up a box saying: "Microsoft Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" I am then given the option to "send report" or "don't send" with a check box next to:"Restart Internet Explorer"
What is causing this and what setting do I need to change to make it stop?
