DEP stops all running programs

Recently when I start my laptop about 5 minutes later, DEP closes all running programs such as exploer.exe, the curse client and everything in between. I don't think I've gotten the latest windows updates. I did not do anything to try to fix it because I've never dealt with DEP and all recently discovered when he stopped all my programs. Any help at all would be appreciated. I'll check the other questions and try some of them, if I looked and did not see anything that either close all programs stopped.

See if it's the same mistake or not?

And also try to run in safe mode and see if the same error will go up or not?

    OK, I have windows 8 and my processor supports hardware (Data Execution Prevention) adj. I sorta understand the concept of DEP however not enough to know whether it should be enabled for all programs or all necessary programs or since my processor hardware DEP can I disable DEP Windows?
    All the information to help me understand better and an answer would be thank you much.

    Hi Peter,.

    Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats. Harmful programs can try to attack Windows by attempting to run (also known as execute) authorized the code from the locations of memory system reserved for Windows and other programs. These types of attacks can affect your programs and files.

    DEP can help protect your computer by analyzing your programs to make sure that they use the system safely memory. If DEP notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you.

    It is not recommended to disable the DEP. DEP automatically monitors essential services and Windows programs. You can increase your protection by having DEP monitor all programs.

    First, see if a version compatible DEP for the program is available by visiting the website of the software publisher. If the Publisher has not released an updated, compatible version DEP for the program, you can turn off DEP for the program that was closed. You will be able to use the program, but it might be vulnerable to an attack that could spread to your other programs and files.

    If you choose to turn off DEP for a program, it's a good idea to check frequently for an updated version of the program and, after you update, to turn on DEP again.

    Let us know the status of the issue. If you need help, please after return. We will be happy to help you.

  • Download iTunes/QuickTime version 10 has been nothing but trouble with DEP blocking all access to the programs.

    I have a Dell PC with Vista 32 and recently clicked on an autoUpgrade for iTunes and QuickTime to version 10. Since then, Execusion Data Protection has blocked the program and I can't get access. I tried to download again, but the problem persists. I tried to go to the advanced security settings to turn off DEP for the iTunes program, but the program is so listed or identifiable on my PC. Opinions of this site have been completely uninstall iTunes and Quick Time, followed of a systems to clean and then reinstall the iTunes with a DEP-compatible version. Should I do this? If I do that I lose all my music files, music downloaded from iTunes store, if I uninstall and start again? And where can I find a compatible version of iTunes DEP?

    If you have a backup it matter, if you do not, make one.

    You don't want trouble right of itunes?  This happened for months and months., would you rather live with her as she is now?
