ABSTRACT
A Windows utility that reports extensive details about a crash (abend). It either sits in the background and captures the current status of the system at the moment of the crash, or it is launched at the time of crash in order to report the details. The DW.EXE file (Dr. Watson program file) has been available for many years as a diagnostic utility, but it is also installed by Office XP. DW.EXE has been known to automatically launch when a crash occurs and, if the crash is too corrupted to analyze, Dr. Watson itself crashes.
