I get an message saying that "DEP" is closing down explorer. It happen on Pay Pal when I try to print a postal label. It also happen on all websites when I try to go to a second screen, For example when I go to the USPS site I can click on calculate shipping costs. It takes me to that screen, but when I enter my information and then click "calculate costs" I get the message that DEP has closed down IE.

DEP is Microsoft's attempt to protect against injection attacks where a program is executing from the web within web site. I have seen this error come up when using EBay's photo uploader and the USPS label printing. You can change DEP to exempt specific programs or alternately, you can disable DEP altogether. To exempt programs, you need to go in to the System properties (Control Panel-Performance), click Advanced tab and then Settings button under Performance. Click the Data Execution Prevention tab. Click the Turn on..except option and browse for the applications you want excluded. Add Internet Explorer and/or Firefox.
Turn turn off DEP:
Get to a command prompt (Start-Run: enter Command). THen type:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
(In Vista, you'll have to go into All Programs/Accesssories and right-click on Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator. Click Allow if prompted by user account control.)

Go To Control Panel. Switch to classic view if it's in catagory view ( theres a link in the left hand side of the screen), open the SYSTEM applet (alternatively right click on MY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES).

Click on the ADVANCED tab and then under the performance group item click on SETTINGS. Another window will open. Click on DATA EXECUTION PREVENTION (DEP). Select the radio box "TURN ON DEP FOR ALL PROGRAMS AND SERVICES EXCEPT THOSE THAT I SELECT." Add explorer to the list by clicking ADD and then browsing to C:\program files\internet explorerand selecting explorer.exe. Click APPLY and OK and then OK.


This should work.

Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a security feature that helps prevent damage from viruses and other security threats by monitoring your programs to make sure they use system memory safely.

Here is a link to an excellent article on DEP.
Whie it will show you how to turn DEP on, it will also take you to the control panel that will aloow you to adjust your settings.

Try accessing the account on another computer with an internet connection if that works then its something with the Imac, if that doesn't work then their is an issue with your pay pal account and I would try and find a better pay pal service representative that is actually able to fix your problem.

Data execution


DEP (data execution prevention) attempts to separate "data" (such as the text of a webpage) from "instructions" ("move the string 'abc' to locations '12345/12346/12347'"), to prevent computer-hackers from introducing "data" (downloaded from a maliciously-constructed web-page) into an area marked as "instructions". The "threat" here is that the "data" will actually be "instructions" of the hacker's choosing, thus giving the hacker a chance to run instructions to completely "take-over" control of your computer.

Click "Start"
Click "All Programs"
Click "Accessories"
Click "System Tools"
Click "Internet Explorer (no add-ons)"
Do some web-surfing.
Close Internet Explorer.
If it closes "normally", then one of the "add-ons" that usually is loaded when Internet Explorer starts is causing the DEP exception.

Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools
Click Manage Add-ons.
Choose one "suspicious" add-on, and "disable" it.
Close I.E.
If it closes normally, then that add-on should _stay_ as "disabled".

Why do i keep getting DEP error message each time i close IE8 or a tab? when i close a tab ie8 reloads it because of dep problems can i go back t ie7 and will this stop the reloads i now have to go to...


You can disable DEP by following these steps:

Disable Data Execution Prevention (DEP) completely
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  3. Under or Pick a Control Panel icon, click System.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and in the Startup and Recovery area, click Settings.
  5. In the SystemStartup area, click Edit.
  6. In Notepad, click Edit and then click Find.
  7. In the Find what field, type /noexecute and then click Find Next.
  8. In the Find dialog box click Cancel.
  9. Replace the policy_level (for example, "OptIn" default) with "AlwaysOff" (without the quotes).

    WARNING: Be sure to enter the text carefully. Your boot.ini file switch should now read:

    /noexecute=AlwaysOff
  10. In Notepad, click File and then click Save.
  11. Click OK to close Startup and Recovery.
  12. Click OK to close System Properties and then restart your computer.
This setting does not provide any DEP coverage for any part of the system, regardless of hardware DEP support.
Verifying DEP is Disabled
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  3. Under or Pick a Control Panel icon, click System.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Performance area, click Settings and then click Data Execution Prevention.
  6. Verify that the DEP settings are unavailable and then click OK to close Performance Settings.
  7. Click OK to close System Properties then close Performance and Maintenance.
Thank you!

Why do i keep getting DEP error message each time i close IE8 or a tab?


windows xp has DEP ( data execution prevention ) some viruses etc use that sort of technique and from SP2 onwards I believe it was they included it.

http://www.zensoftware.co.uk/kb/article.aspx?id=10002


Several OSs have no-execute or execute protection. Microsoft has added this as well in SP2 with data execution prevention (DEP). This precents code execution in memory regions already marked as storage. This is a powerful tool against buffer overrun exploits. If a program is failing and you want to disable DEP to see if that is the cause. Here are the steps. (Just disable DEP for the program in question… don’t disable it for your whole system.)
    1. Click Start
    2. Select Control Panel
    3. Select System
    4. Click the Advanced tab
    5. In the Performance region select Settings
    6. Click the Data Execute tab in the dialog box that opens
    7. Select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except for those I select
    8. Click Add.
    9. The open dialog box will open. Browse and select your application.
    10. Click Open
    11. Click Apply
    12. Click Ok
    13. Reboot

Intellinav.exe application error


The error 0xC0000005 is generated by an illegal "memory access violation". This can be caused by anything from faulty RAM, an incorrect/corrupt device driver, poorly written/updated software and more commonly under Windows XP Service pack 2, malware/adware installations.

Usually you get this error message when performing a specific task, and if that happens you need to check the corresponding 3rd party's website/support department to see if they are aware of the problem

..a while back symantec Antivirus caused the 0xC0000005 error with an additional message about a file called SAVRT.SYS . A simple software update to the Symantec Antivirus cured the problem.
So what can you do...? well below are a couple of suggestions:

0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion One:
In many cases this error has been generated by faulty RAM memory. So if you have just upgraded your computer with some new memory and you started getting this error then I would remove them and see if the error goes away. If it does then send the memory back and get a refund!


0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion Two:
In Windows XP Service Pack 2 Microsoft introduced Data execution prevention (DEP), a set of hardware and software technologies that perform additional checks on memory to help protect against malicious code exploits. In Windows XP SP2, DEP is enforced by both hardware and software.

Some software/application behaviors are incompatible with DEP - data execution prevention. Applications which perform dynamic code generation
(such as Just-In-Time code generation) and that do not explicitly mark generated code with Execute permission might have compatibility issues with data execution prevention. Applications which are not built with Safe SEH must have their exception handlers located in executable memory regions.

Applications that attempt to violate DEP will receive an exception with status code STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xC0000005).

If an application requires executable memory, it must explicitly set this attribute on the appropriate memory by specifying PAGE_EXECUTE, PAGE_EXECUTE_READ, PAGE_EXECUTE_READWRITE or PAGE_EXECUTE_WRITECOPY in the memory protection argument of the Virtual* memory allocation functions.

If you are having issues with 0xC0000005 errors in DEP and a particular piece of software is causing the offense, contact the vendor for a resolution...

Note: It is possible to "Turn Off" DEP in the boot.ini file but this really would be a last step!
/NOEXECUTE

This option is only available on 32-bit versions of Windows when running on processors supporting no-execute protection. It enables no-execute protection (also known as Data Execution Protection - DEP), which results in the Memory Manager marking pages containing data as no-execute so that they cannot be executed as code. This can be useful for preventing malicious code from exploiting buffer overflow bugs with unexpected program input in order to execute arbitrary code. No-execute protection is always enabled on 64-bit versions of Windows on processors that support no-execute protection.

There are several options you can specify with this switch:

/NOEXECUTE=OPTIN Enables DEP for core system images and those specified in the DEP configuration dialog.

/NOEXECUTE=OPTOUT Enables DEP for all images except those specified in the DEP configuration dialog.

/NOEXECUTE=ALWAYSON Enables DEP on all images.

/NOEXECUTE=ALWAYSOFF Disables DEP. (This setting doesn't provide any DEP coverage for any part of the system, regardless of hardware DEP support. The processor doesn't run in Physical Address Extension (PAE) mode unless the /PAE option is present in the boot.ini file.)

0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion Three:
I have also seen this error in the gaming community when folks have updated drivers for their graphics card. If this happens just roll back your drivers.


0xC0000005 - Resolution Suggestion Four:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 stops responding when you try to open an HTML document or a Web page. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Access Violation (0xC0000005 exception)

CAUSE:

This problem may occur when you use Internet Explorer 6.0 to open an HTML document or a Web page that contains SPAN tags. If a SPAN tag is not closed correctly by using the </SPAN> tag, an access violation may occur.
WHY are you using IE6 still??? Upgrade to IE 7 today!

...and that should have now resolved the 0xC0000005 error for you!
