Data Execution Prevention


Recommended Posts

So I was sitting infront of my computer getting ready to watch hak5. When I clicked on the episode Real Player openned up, froze, and shut down with a message allong the lines of:

Data Execution Prevention

Microsoft Data Execution Prevention has prevented you

from running this file to help prevent against viruses

Or at least something very close.

Okay, so my question is: Is there a way to Completely turn off the DEP "feature" because it is really statring to cause problems.

Thanks, Loki

right click my computer->properties->adanced->performance-> settings->Data Execution Protection->ensure it's set to "Turn on DEP for essential windows programs and services only"

that should mean it won't run on things like real player.
