Startup problems with DW
Vista Home Premium, Dell XPS410, SP1 installed and up-to-date on patches.
Installation was fresh (not an upgrade)

In investigating why my system will not successfully hibernate I came upon
the following in Event Viewer:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
DW

Event 7026, Service Control Manager Eventlog Provider

In HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services is an entry \DW
it includes values for ERRORCONTROL, START, TYPE (each has value of 1)

Other entries in ....\Services have a value for ImagePath that says where
the item is located, there is no such location for 'DW'

So the question is is this normal, anyone have comment on expected
consequences of removing \DW from ....\services?

(From looking around DW may be a stub for Dr. Watson in XP ?????)

Thanks,
Michael

Run MSCONFIG and see if there is an item in the Startup area that
refers to that.

Re: Startup problems with DW
nothing in services or startup that seems to apply.

The DW folder is in Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared.

Re: Startup problems with DW
but there is no DW program (exe,dll,sys) in there and the registry entry has
no pointer to anywhere. I am kind of thinking that the folder structure is
there to fool XP aware programs that used Dr Watson.
