First I will attempt to clarify cassandra's position(and mine incidently)
1)stated in the forum rules:The purpose of P2P is to illegally trade copyrighted material.
1a)AS stated in the post by cassandra: I live in Canada, where file sharing IS legal.
1b)Article supporting cassandra's assertion can be found here:
2)Stated in forum rules: We do not support the use of P2P networks and any threads requesting help for them will be closed
2a) A natural outgrowth (and proper response) based on the fact that P2P file sharing is in fact illegal...in the United States.
3)Stated in forum rules:If you're interested in the topic, you are free to discuss it on our site
3a)As stated in the post by cassandra:I did NOT come here asking about an auxilary Non-Windows installed application.(Kazaa)
3b)As stated in the post by cassandra:I came here with a problem regarding a WINDOWS application,(Dr Watson) which is exactly the purpose of these forums as stated in the forums Description and Title
4)Stated in forum rules:information on how to use them (P2P networks) will not be provided.
4a)Once again check 3a and 3b above:3a)I did NOT come here asking about an auxilary Non-Windows installed application.(Kazaa)
:3b)I came here with a problem regarding a WINDOWS application, which is exactly the purpose of these forums as stated in the forums Description and Title.(Dr Watson)
5)The INFORMATION provided in the link included in the forum rules DOES NOT APPLY in this case as P2P file sharing IS NOT ILLEGAL IN CANADA
6)I will not presume to speak for cassandra,or anyone else who uses P2P file sharing programs,but personally,should P2P file sharing become illegal in Canada,I will stop using it and in the mean time I will respect the forum rules ie:information on how to use them (P2P networks) will not be provided.
In any case,the question cassandra asked in her post was specifically:"I'd like to know a way to uninstall/remove it (Dr Watson) permanently.
Cassandra,I don't think there is a way to uninstall Dr Watson but you can try this:
How to Disable Dr. Watson for Windows
Hkey_local_machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Aedebug
Click on and edit the debugger value delete the text in the popup box referring to Dr. Watson followed by some values which look like: drwtsn32 -p %ld -e %ld -g
Click on OK
Dr. Watson is now disabled
4. Disabling Dr. Watson via the GUI Interface:
If you want to disable Dr Watson via the GUI Interface, you can do the following:
a. From the NT start menu Run command, type in: drwtsn32.exe
b. Clear all check marks from Options boxes.
c. This will disable Dr. Watson from running
