Dr. Watson should be permanently killed, in my opinion.

It is basically a useless appendage whose sole purpose appears to be
to pollute the actual Windows error messages with vast amounts of
meaningless verbiage so as to render the reported result totally
useless for any constructive purpose such as searching the Microsoft
Knowledge Base.
