Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger is an error debugger program for Windows XP that collects information about errors occurred during running any applications on a computer. Often, the Dr. Watson debugger takes all system resources, especially when two or more instances of the program run simultaneously. If Dr. Watson causes a significant decline in the computer performance, it can be either removed or disabled. Note that disabling of the debugger is preferable since you can activate it later if necessary.
