    "dwwin.exe - DLL Initialization Failed" on shutdo
    Whenever I shutdown windows, I get this message:

    Dwwin.exe - DLL Initialization Failed -
    The application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down.


    The message pops up quickly and disappears only during shutdown... I was lucky enough to capture the message using a screen-capture software... (if not... I would never be able to ask this question)

    Anyway... what's a 'dwwin.exe'?

    QQAple, psi42 is on the right track. The site he link is a pretty good site about solving that dwwin.exe problem .

    Here, this site tells you what it is:

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,640479,00.asp

    You can disable dwwin.exe which is a Dr. Watson error-collector and reporting tool, in your registry like so:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug

    Or you can download dwwin.exe to try to repair it, here:

    Otherwise, try also doing WINDOWS UPDATE from the "TOOLS" option at top of IE menu .
