Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?

Wierd problem When I do a soft reboot and my desktop screen comes up, a folder called system32 pops up and stays there until I manually close it. I'm getting sick n tired of this folder coming up everytime I reboot. Also when I try to shutdown to restart, something called dwwin.exe - A dll shows up. I can hit ok and it disappears or just let the machine goes and it goes away but I never had this show up before.


Answers :

It sounds like a program you have installed is having an error on startup. Dwwin.exe is the executable for Dr. Watson, an error reporting program that comes with windows. \015\012\015\012Errors like this usually raise a red flag with me, and the first thing I always do is scan for spyware and viruses. If you don't already use them, I would suggest using Spybot - Search and Destroy, as well as Ad-Aware SE for spyware, and Panda Activescan and Trend Micro Housecall for online virus scanning. (using multiple programs is always a good idea so nothing slips by.)\015\012\015\012Next, I would check your startup programs to see what is there to determine what could be generating an error.\015\012\015\012Your computer could also be missing critical updates that could solve many problems (as well as scan for malicious software if you are using windows XP). You should run windows update through the menu in internet explorer.\015\012\015\012Methods for these solutions depend on which operating system you are using. If you need any further help, give a list of all your startup items and which OS you are using and I (or someone else) can give more detailed instructions.
