  • Has anyone found the solution to the "blue screen" that States windows has been shut down to protect your computer?

    I followed the directions when invited to press F8 but nothing not done, I find myself just to return to the 'blue '.

    I don't have add new hardware before that happened.

    You gave us a general indication of the nature of the problem but the specific error reports are a much easier solution.

    When a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) the system failure occurs, for most users, there not enough time to fully record what he says. the exact text is important for anyone trying to diagnose what is wrong. You can save time when the error occurs then by following the procedure described below.

    If you already did it disable the auto reboot system error. This should help by allowing the time to write the code to Stop error and related information correctly. Do right click on the icon my computer on the desktop and select Properties, advanced, startup and recovery, system failure and uncheck the box before automatically restarting. Re-do not enable automatic restart in the event of system failure after obtaining this information, this setting is the best left to not allow an automatic restart.

    If the failure occurs during the initialization of the computer, you need to try a different approach. You can access the Advanced Options Menu of Windows on multiple computers by constantly pressing the F8 (key) key when starting and selecting the option - disable automatic restart in case of system error. This method is not always easy to use because it may be difficult to press the F8 key at the right time. Try again if it doesn't work the first time. On some computers, a different key must be used.

  • Windows Update gets closed by Windows Data Execution Prevention

    Running Windows XP Pro with SP3.  Windows Update is set to warn me of updates.

    For the last two days, whenever I turn on, a popup appears saying

    -Microsoft Windows data execution prevention.  To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.  Name: Windows Update.  Publisher: Microsoft Corporation.

    It gives me a "close this window" button, but if I click on it it just reappears.  The offending executable seems to be wuauctl.exe.

    I checked and the only wuauctl.exe on my system is where it should be, in \Windows\System32\, although there are also a large number of \Windows\pchealth\ErrorRep\UserDumps entries all from when I first encountered the problem.

    What has gone wrong and what I would do to this topic?

    I suggest that you make sure you have Latest Windows Update Agent.  If you do and are still getting the error, then try the steps listed below.

    If your computer is set to apply DEP to all programs and services, the DEP error message will have a change settings button. If an update of the program is not available, follow these steps to add an exception for the program of the DEP error message:

    1. When you receive the error message, click change settings.
    2. Click to select the check box next to the program, and then click apply.
    3. When you are prompted to restart your computer, double click on OK and restart your system.

    You can also add an exception for the program by using System Properties in Control Panel. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, click run, type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
    2. Click the Advanced tab, click performance, and then click settings.
    3. In the Performance Options, click the Data Execution Prevention tab, and then click Add.
    4. In the Open dialog box, locate and then click the program.
    5. Click Open, click apply, and then click OK. When you are prompted to restart your computer, click OK.

  • Data Execution Prevention has closed Adobe Reader

    I can't launch Adobe Reader, received the following message


    When I close the program, a message says "Data Execution Prevention has closed Adobe Reader".  I searched the Microsoft Community for corrections, but these suggestions do not work.

    I'm running Windows Vista Home Basic Version 6 Service Pack 2, 32-bit and I downloaded Adobe Reader 10.1.4

    You can download the 10.1.9 update patch

    Protected Mode is normally disabled since in the Adobe Reader preferences.  Given that you can't even open Adobe Reader, you can turn it off via the Windows registry: download, unzip, then run the attached registry script.

    If I get a data execution prevention message, how can I find which program has been interrupted?

    Hi Robhofm,

    Usually the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) automatically monitors Windows programs and services. You can increase your protection by having DEP monitor all programs.

    For the program being stopped by DEP, you will receive an error message indicating the cause of the stop and the name of the program.

    For more information you can consult.
