I have tried to install XP SP2 on a number of occasions and each time I have
been unable to start a number of programmes including Internet Explorer and
Windows Explore.

My PC was riddled with spyware before but I have used both adaware and
Microsoft's Anti Spyware Beta 1 to remove before the SP2 installation.

One other interesting aspect is that whilst trying to start up Internet
Explorer, DR Watson's debugger crashes and tries to send a report to

It seems to have something to do with DRWTSN32.EXE.

Any ideas?

Dr Watson is just Microsoft's application error debugger.
Nothing else - it runs to record errors and where applicable, attempt to
report them to Microsoft.

Your problem is recorded in your Event Log, I am sure.
