Data Execution Prevention

Posted: 03-13-2007, 01:43 AM
Hi, I have windows vista and have been trying to use my Windows Messenger but
it keeps getting closed down because of the Data Execution Prevention. I have
followed the prompts to try and turn it off the Data Execution Prevention but
a notice appears saying the windows messanger must have Data Execution
Prevention. So any ideas how i can get my messenger to run? please!

Windows Messenger or MSN Messenger? Windows Messenger is not supported on
Vista. It has been deprecated and will not work properly on Vista at all. The
replacement is Office Communicator.

I have a UK accounting system (Sage). When I try to install updates Vista
comes back and tells me it has terminated the program for DEP reasons.
Do you know how I get around this please.

I would get around it by obtaining a copy of the program that was properly
designed for Windows XP - let alone Windows Vista.

Your program is trying to execute code in a protected area of memory. This
is exactly what some malicious software does. This action was not desirable
under XP and it is prevented since XP service pack 2 and also in Vista.

Can it be turned off? YES!

Would I do it or recommend it? NO!

See if your motherboard has NX or data exception switch in the BIOS. If
your motherboard, supports DEP at the hardware level use it. I disabled
DEP because of my old applications don't support it. No newer versions
that support DEP. Microsoft will always tell you to leave it on. I
don't know of many newer applications that fully support DEP.
