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".

I am using IE8. i cannot close any of the tabs and windows. when i click on close button, data execution prevention window will appear. please, anybody help me.


Have any toolbars or new sofware been added recently? If so and you are using Win XP you may want to try a system restore to a previous point before the changes were made or uninstall the toolbars completely. Also disabled all Pop-Up blockers to see if that has any effect.clean up ur registry using reginout

Tip

Disable XP Shutdown


There may be times when you want to make sure that XP can't be inadvertently shut down. You can use a Registry hack to disable the normal Shut Down. Run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. Create a new DWORD value named NoClose with a data value of 1. Exit the Registry and reboot in order for the change to take effect. You won't be able to shut down Windows in the normal manner from now on; you'll have to run Task Manager by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete or right-clicking on the Toolbar, choosing Task Manager, and then using the Task Manager's Shut Down menu to close Windows. If you want to reenable normal shutdowns, delete the NoClose value.

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

I am downloading software with problems


Are you using another browser other than IE? Some other browsers use the IE engine and will trigger this message. Also look at you running processes: Press Ctrl+Alt+Del (in Vista then select Task Manager) When task manager appears Click the Processes Tab, then click the word Description in the 5th coloum at the top of that coloum to sort on description. Scroll down to the "I" and see if you see "Internet Explorer" as a running process IF SO, and you know you have shut down Internet Explorer right click on IE and then select End Process and then answer yes. When All instances of IE are remove from the processes then try to reinstall your software. Let me know if this helped you!
