DR W. can actually cause this to happen. try the following:

   in the Open box, and then click OK.
 
2. Locate the following registry key:

         AeDebug
 
   NOTE: Steps 3-4 are optional, but necessary if you want to restore the
   default use of Dr. Watson.
 
3. Click the AeDebug key, and then click Export Registry File on the
   Registry menu.
 
4. Enter a name and location for the saved registry file, and then click
   Save.

I know Dr.Watson may cause problem for running some apps. However, this computer run everything fine about two weeks ago. So, that means this problem might cause by other reasons. I do not want to disable Dr. Watson as it still is good program to trace which apps are stopped. Could you find some better way for this problem.
