Data Execution Prevention Or No-Execute Memory Protection?

May 17, 2009

I had DEP enabled in my Bios setup, but have just had my OS reinstalled (Vista Home Premium 32 bit) and now cannot find DEP mentioned by that name in the Bios settings. There is reference to "No-Execute Memory Protection"-is that DEP by another name, and if so do you agree it is a good idea to enable it?

Data Execution Prevention And Photoshop Plug-in

May 20, 2008

I need to install a FM Patcher program so some of my older plug-in will work in Photo Shop and PSP.

When I installed the patcher I get this error message that I have attached.FM Patcher is a small application that lets you change Photoshop .8bf plugins that were created with older versions of FilterMeister in order to make them work under Windows Vista. Normally developers just need to recompile their plugins with the latest FilterMeister release to make them Vista-compatible, but unfortunately some developers abandoned their plugins. So we decided to create FM Patcher to enable users of these old plugins to make them work under Vista.

At the moment Fm Patcher does not fix the problem that old FilterMeister plugins have with activated Data Execution Prevention (DEP). You still need to deactivate DEP in your control panel or place your graphics application on the DEP exclusion list.

Where is the DEP and how do I turn it off?

Stopping On Data Execution Prevention (DEP) Violations

May 9, 2008

I had a problem with my Microsoft Vista print spooler (spoolsv.exe) stopping on Data Execution Prevention (DEP) violations from the time I installed my HP and Lexmark printers. This has been only an irritation to date as I have set the spooler to always restart 1 minute after failure. However lately I am having more programs stop on DEP violation. The Microsoft Vista??? WMI Provider Host??? has stopped several times on DEP. I do not know what the ???Vista WMI Provider Host??? does. I did not see any adverse results with the Microsoft Vista??? WMI Provider Host??? stopped. So far my DEP violations have been random and inconsistent. The print spooler stops on DEP even when both printers are off. I have performed hardware checks as recommended by Dell and the computer hardware tested OK.

Data Execution Prevention Has Closed Windows Mail

Mar 23, 2008

For the past few weeks I've been getting episodes of Windows Mail closing and reporting that "Data Execution Prevention has closed Windows Mail". It seems to occur when I'm in the middle of preparing a message - it has never occurred when I clicked "Send/Receive". The problem first occurred a few hours after receiving a message with three PDFs totaling 5 MB in size. When this first occurred I had the current version of NOD32 (3.0.642) running but I turned off email scanning and the problem still happens every few days. On two of the crashes Windows Mail reported it couldn't find a few messages, and some messages were gone from my Inbox, but after deleting one or two such messages I was able to get back all the missing email. Is the best bet that NOD32 corrupted my email files? Are there other possibilities I should be thinking of or testing for? Is there some way to keep things like this from happening without ditching all my old mail?

DATA PROTECTION Fraud Antivirus: Data Protection Is A Counterfeit Application Which Pretends To Be A Legitimate Security Tool

May 14, 2010

Data Protection is a counterfeit application which pretends to be a legitimate security tool. It is also from the same rogue family as Digital Protection, Your Protection, User Protection, Dr. Guard and Paladin Antivirus. The trojan based software starts its activities as soon as it installs onto your computer. Malware has no ability to detect and terminate the parasite. It only gains that user lose their vigilance and would buy a registered version of Data Protection application.

This is a fraud and dangerous for your computer. Behind an offer stands bad people who will use your money for malicious intentions. This application is not worth spending your money. As any malware this one will scan your computer automatically and will show fake results. You should ignore it. Do not fall for this blatant scam. Data Protection can also redirect your web browser to deceptive web pages that advertises “full” version of the security tool. Do not buy it, but choose decent anti-spyware application and terminate Data Protection upon detection. - the conclusion is that Malware bytes does remove it,, you need to download the lastest malware byte or update the one you got.

I have Vista Ultimate with 2 User ids (mine as admin, wife's as user). On my new PC I installed the ASUS utilities under my id. When I log on with my id the ASUS utiities execute with no UAC intervention (load at startup). When my wife logs on (uses account), several ASUS programs (part of aisuite) start up and require a UAC interaction to approve the execution. The request displays in the Task Bar. Is there an option where UAC does not request execution approval under my wife's id?

Server Execution Failed

Mar 23, 2008

I get the "Server execution failed. Connection status: unknown" message when I roll over the network icon in the status bar. In addition, I cannot open the Network window in the start menu. When I try to open it, the computer hangs for several minutes, then opens up an empty window. I've tried searching around on the internet, but the solutions I found didn't work. The error message started a few months ago. I never cared much, because although I got the message, my internet worked. I was able to connect to my home network, but not change networks. But now, I am unable to connect even to my home network. I have Windows Vista Home Premium. This seems to be a somewhat common problem, but I don't know how to fix it. I have not installed/deinstalled anything in the last few days, so I don't think any software caused this problem.

When Ever I Execute An Exe File, I Can't Delete It Afterwards

Jul 28, 2009

I have a very unusual problem with my vista ultimate 64 bit, when ever I execute an exe file, I can't delete it afterwards. I can delete it after restart. There is no security problem, if I do not execute the file then I can delete, move and do what I want. The moment it is run, and certainly close it, I can't delete it any longer. I checked that the process is not running any more. I tried to see if something is locking the file, no handle was found on the file. It happens for different programs, no matter what as long as it is an .exe file. I tried unlocker program that said the file is not locked. It happens even on a usb key with FAT. The moment I run the exe from the key I can't delete it, and I can't remove the key the right way.

When I pull out the key, and return it, I can delete the file, it is free. But I can't do that to my hard drive. Tried scanning for virus, and malware - nothing was found. Tried security related, but since it happen on a usb FAT disk, and there is no security for that, I am starting to give up. At this time formatting the computer in not an option.

Total Memory Available 3.3GB With 4GB Physical Memory Under Windows 7 64 Bit

Nov 29, 2009

I had 4GB physical memoryon the PC. With Windows vista 32 bit, available memory is shown as 3.3GB. I asked and was told that only under 64 bit windows, will the available memory be 4GB. When I upgraded to windows 7, I chosed 64 bit, but the available memory shown in the system is still 3.3 GB. Why is this and is there a way to make the full 4GB available? It's possible that my video card is using RAM instead of its own RAM. If I install a video card with its own RAM, will the full 4GB be available?

Command Failed To Execute Fixed

May 21, 2009

Windows Vista/32 bit/Home Premium. I installed IE8, started getting "command failed to execute" when I tried to open an attachment in my Hotmail (old style not Live) on MSN Premium with MSN Explorer. They would open in Live. I like the old stuff because it's easier to use for me. I read the threads to uninstall IE8. I did and problem fixed. Go to microsoft.com, click on the support tab, click IE Solution Center, click How to uninstall IE8, click Microsoft Fix It.

If it goes to your Download Manager, run it fro there after it downloads. Restart and check as it tells you to see that it uninstalled. Hope this works for you also. You'd think Microsoft could put a package together that would work with their own systems.... I have another problem that no one seems to know how to fix, had a recommendation to go to Mozilla Firefox.

I opened my windows mail this morning. As many others have done. The "command failed to execute" came up when I tried to open a pdf or adobe file. I have never had trouble opening them before. So? I looked at another e-mail that had a pdf/adobe file attached and the same thing happened.

Could someone please advise. I went threw the posts and seems everyone thinks it is connected with their anti virus. I run Previx and have for several years. No updates to it lately and never a problem such as this. I made sure the security box was unchecked. Which it was.
