Try this:

Put your XP CD in your dvd/cd drive.
Start, Run, type without quotes "cmd". In the new screen type (always without quotes):
"X:" where X is where you have your CD drive. Then type "cd i386" and then "expand drwtsn32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\drwtsn32.exe"
Type "exit" and reboot

You have to extract a "clean" version of the DrWatson executable, and copy it to the System32 folder.

The command:

"expand drwtsn32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\drwtsn32.exe"

will do this for you - change X: to your CD drive letter, i.e.

start, run, type cmd <press enter>

In the resulting window:

type E: (or whatever your cd drive is) <press enter>

then type:

expand drwtsn32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\drwtsn32.exe <press enter>

Then reboot (Start, Turn Off Computer - Restart)

Sorry - you need to run the expand command from

E:\I386

(not just E:)

Okay - try

E:\i386\> expand dbghelp.dll c:\windows\system32\dbghelp.dll.exe

Then try

Start, Run, type:

regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\dbghelp.dll

Yes - a repair install would probably sort this out:

http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Before that, try to use regasm to register the dll

i.e.

regasm c:\windows\system32\dbghelp.dll

F:\I386>regasm c:\windows\system32\dbghelp.dll
'regasm' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

F:\I386>

Download a copy of dbghelp.dll from here:

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?dbghelp

Copy it into System32 and try the regsrv32 command again.

This is quite a bad fault - as DrWatson actually "DrWatsoned" itself (to coin a phrase)

Try booting into Safe Mode - and run the regsrv32 command again

(reboot, press F8 just after the computer posts - before XP logo appears)

Select Safe Mode <press enter>

If this doesn't work - you will have to try a repair install as you suggested.
