Periodically my ASP.NET application crashes (usually because memory consumption exceeds maximum allowed by application pool) and
DW20.exe starts up. This is a big problem because it uses huge amounts of memory and CPU for minutes at a time.
I want to know how to stop
DW20.exe from running. Please note, I have already tried these often mentioned solutions:
Disabling error reporting in Control Panel > System > Advanced > Error Reporting
Disabling the Error Reporting Service
Modifying the registry as in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841477 (however I might have done this wrong - this doc says "add a
DWReporteevalue of 1" - what I did was add a DWORD entry with hexadecimal value of 1 - is this right? Also only 2 of the 4 keys were present, so I only modified these, e.g. there was no
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\PCHealthkey at all)
So, zero points for suggesting any of the above (unless you can see I have modified the registry incorrectly)! Also zero points for suggesting I resolve whatever is causing the application crashes :) - I am figuring this out, I just want something in the mean time to stop
DW20.exe eating up all the server resources.
By the way, this is a Windows 2003 SP1 server, with IIS 6 and SQL 2005 installed. There is no MS Office.
