    Pretty much what the title says. I'm having my 272 nexte tuesday and the Sybex book mentions this tool which I never heard of. I read the MS KB article but this feels like old school stuff? Am I wrong?

    It's not that old school. Link for info is here.

    I very much doubt that it will be on your 272 though. And if it is then it will be one of the possible wrong answers. :p

    The DrWatson logs can be used for CrashDump analysis, the average user is too dumb to do this.

    Some people send their logs to MS for MS's teams to analyze.

    As I understand it, its not really a debugger, just a program that provides a hook for the kernel debugger to kick in or a crash dump to be generated.

    If Microsoft "interpets" it the way I did - "if Dr Watson is on there, it's a wrong answer" - they wouldn't likely be very happy with Mister Qs. NDA is NDA is NDA. Just sayin.

    They made the name less obvious ages ago, poor computer users thought they had the pox !

    Its called 'Problem Reports and Solutions' now.
