Hello EricS777

The part where it looks like your xp stuff and vista stuff switch drives is normal. Only the Operating System associates the hard drives by letters this does not mean your hard drive files are switching. This happens because D: drive is Root of Vista OS and Root of any OS in windows gets the C: drive lettering.

dwwin.exe, drwtsn.exe dll is the "Microsoft Application Error Reporting" tool.
\015\012I think the message means that something is crashing during system\015\012shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the\015\012error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the\015\012application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.
\015\012Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.
\015\012If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative\015\012Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t\015\012want that running anyway.
\015\012Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
\015\012Put a check at both
\015\012Disable Error Reporting
\015\012But notify me when critical errors occur
\015\012Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.
