What is dwwin.exe?

Threaded View
At shutdown, I get a message that dwwin.exe could not initialize. I
searched, and found:

DWWIN.EXE-30875ADC.PF C\WINDOWS\Prefetch 59KB PF File 21/03/2008 8:04 PM
dwwin.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32 176 KB Application 28/02/2006 8:00 AM

 From the date, it looks like dwwin.exe is a Windows system file. Why
should it initialize during shutdown? And why won't it do so?

I'm asking here in case it's not as benign as it seems to be, or else
that something has messed it up.

TIA

MS Dr. Watson debugger for Win32.
It is a WinOS compoent.

That is assuming it is not malware named the same as Dr. Watson.
