DWWIN.EXE: Can Someone Clarify

By comp1systems ·
In a recent question I was asked, "What is dwwin.exe, and
why does it keep popping up as unable to download," I
conducted some research and found that a lot of security
related applications will throw up warning flags about this
file trying to read, write or modify a number of other .exe
files. And that this isn't anything to worry about because
it's only trying to investigate "events" that it believes is
causing problems that may lead to crashing.

I conveyed this information and have heard nothing more,
but my curiosity goes on. Although this was the only
seemingly solid piece of information I found, I would like to
make sure it definitely does not mean something else (i.e.,
spyware, adware, or other Windows application).

Too, I discovered dwwin.exe is the biggest complaint
searched for on the internet by computer users
experiencing the same problem. One suggestion is to
disable the Error Reporting tool. After that, it is said that
90% of the time the program will function properly.

I'd like to know if anyone has any comments relating to
