Werfault.exe -application error\r\n

You can try to disable this service by following the below steps:
Step 1: Open your computer's Control Panel by selecting "Start" > "Control Panel" from your computer's Start menu.
Step 2: Choose the "System and Maintenance" > "Problem Reports" menu option from the Control Panel menu.
Step 3: Select "Change Settings" > "Advanced Settings" from the Problem Reports program menu and turn off the automatic problem reporting feature in Windows.
Step 4: Exit the Problem Reporting application by selecting "File" > "Exit" from the File menu. Werfault.exe will now only run on your computer in the event of a catastrophic application problem.

If disabling the application does not work, y
ou should keep in mind that many malware programs can show up on your system as seemingly legitimate files by using file names that are very similar to those of legitimate files. Whenever you are in doubt about a particular file, always scan your system for viruses.

There's One Cool Feature in Windows 7 that's not available in it's predecessors, which is called "Problem Steps Recorder".

3. Next, Double Click on the found file "psr" and you should see the following program appear on your desktop:


4. To Start Recreating What You Did When Your Problem Occurred, First, Click On The "Record" Button.

5. Now, Just Navigate To The File/Folder or Application To Which You Are Experiencing Problems With. (This Can Be Accomplished The Same Way in Which You Normally Open/Access Files/Folders & Applications).

6. Once You Have Got To The File/Folder or Application That Was Giving You An Error Message When Opening The File/Folder or Application & The Error Message Can Be Seen On Your Desktop, Then You Can Press "Stop" On The "psr" Application.

7. You Shall Then Be Prompted To Create A Name For Your "psr" Report, Which You Should Name Accordingly To The Problem You Have Recorded.

Dll driving me nuts

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.

I think the message means that something is crashing during system shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.

Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.

If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t want that running anyway.

Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
Put a check at both
Disable Error Reporting
But notify me when critical errors occur

Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.
