    Dwwin.exe error after Amazon log-in
    This is a weird one also concerning dwwin.exe. This ONLY happens when I have logged into To be clear, if I go to Amazon to look around, it's fine, and it's fine with any other website - but if I LOG In to my Amazon account, then when I log off my computer (I'm using Windows XP) here's what I get:

    Dwwin.exe - DLL initialization failed - The application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down OK (I click OK)
    SW: AcroRd32.exe - Application Error - The instruction at "Ox5ad71531" referenced memory at "Ox00000014". The memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate the program. (I click OK) and then my computer shuts down normally.

    I am not a computer wiz, so I would really appreciate it if someone could help me walk through what I might be able to do to stop this.
    Thanks muchly

    Dwwin.exe is Doctor Watson. This is an error reporting tool for windows. The answer is above in AcroRd32.exe . This is adobe acrobat reader. Generally when it errors it is because it is trying to update. You can either disable auto updates, force an update manually(by opening the adobe program and clicking update) to get rid of the message or get rid of adobe altogether(uninstal).

    Good Luck

    Thanks - I will try updating and/or deleting Adobe to see if this works. I appreciate it. If I don't write again, it means it's fixed.
    Have a great day
