View Full Version : Problem with dwwin.exe; Computer Freezes; Can't Use Certain Programs

2009-04-03, 05:33
I have a problem with what I think comes from dwwin.exe. Symptoms include: Computer freezes when opening Windows Media Player and iTunes, computer freezes at other random times, when I delete dwwin.exe from the Task Manager, the problem goes away for quite a while and then dwwin.exe comes back.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware freezes whenever I use it in Windows Normal Mode. A full scan is only possible when I use it in Safe Mode, but even after deleting malware files from the Safe Mode scan, the problem persists.

I do not know which log I should be posting. Please help.

You need to read and follow the "Before you Post" instructions, I placed a link above. You should review all pinned (sticky) links so you can see stuff like this:

Do NOT run 'FIXES' before helpers have analyzed the HJT log

dwwin.exe <<< that is Microsoft Doctor Watson error reporting tool telling you about a problem.

The symptoms sound like malware, but can be something else. Start by posting a HijackThis log and I will see what I can find out.

Register free (no need to purchase anything) and run the diagnostic tests. Post a link to those tests so I can vew the results.
