Try superkil.exe from thethin.net download page, that 'should' work but the
question is - what's causing them so you can resolve it !?

Subject: [windows2000] Dr Watson crisis
I have a server that has intermittently ground to a halt - usually in the
evenings, when the first I hear is that it is dead. What we think is the
same problem ahs now occurred again. Not sure what the initial problem is,
but in my task manager processes, I now have about 30 drwtsn32.exe processes
running. They each only take up about 40k and negligible (<1%) processing
power each; but there are 30 of them. I have now switched off Dr Watson. No
log files seem to be generated in any case.
Anyone got any ideas how to kill these processes (The normal end process
does not work)?
