Re: "Data Execution Prevention" error message in Windows XP Service Pack 2

You see this occurs because, Microsoft Windows XP SP2 uses the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature to help prevent damage from viruses and from other security threats.
If a program tries to run code from a protected location, DEP closes the program and notifies you, whether the code is malicious or not.
And if you click Close Message, the program quits, and Windows Error Reporting gives you the option to send an error report.

Find Solution

1) Try it by updating your windows with SP3, by download from Microsoft website find the link below.
Click here for deatil with download http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=24
Click here for direct download http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/confirmation.aspx?id=24

2) Follow these steps to add an exception for your error program (Like Windows Explorer)
  • Click Start, click Run, type "sysdm.cpl"(Also go to control panel \system Properties), and then click OK.
  • Click the Advanced tab, click Performance, and then click Settings.
  • In Performance Options, click the Data Execution Prevention tab, and then click Add.
  • In the Open dialog box, locate and then click the program.
  • Click Open, click Apply, and then click OK. When you are prompted to restart your computer, click OK.

    Note :-if Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only or Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select: is selected.
    When your computer is configured to turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only, you cannot add an exception for a program. This is the behavior that is by design in Windows XP SP2.[/list][/list]
