Question: In the instructions on how to disable DEP, on step 7 which says "7. Type or copy and paste this into the command prompt window: bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff", does {current} refer to the web page URL? If yes, does one type in the entire URL? If no, what does {current} refer to? Thanks

My google chrome crashed and everytime i click on it a message says DEP has closed it


To use hardware-enforced DEP, you must meet all the following conditions:
  1. The computer's processor must support hardware-enforced DEP.

    Many recent processors support hardware-enforced DEP. Both Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Intel Corporation have defined and shipped Windows-compatible architectures that are compatible with DEP. This processor support may be known as NX (no-execute) or XD (execute disable) technology. To determine whether your computer's processor supports hardware-enforced DEP, contact the manufacturer of your computer.
  2. Hardware-enforced DEP must be enabled in the BIOS.

    On some computers, you can disable processor support for hardware-enforced DEP in the BIOS. You must not disable this support. Depending on your computer manufacturer, the option to disable this support may be labeled "Data Execution Prevention," "XD," "Execute Disable," or "NX."
  3. The computer must have Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 installed.

    Note Both 32-bit versions and 64-bit versions of Windows support hardware-enforced DEP. Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 include all the features and components of Windows XP SP2.
  4. Hardware-enforced DEP must be enabled for programs on the computer.

    In 64-bit versions of Windows, hardware-enforced DEP is always enabled for 64-bit native programs. However, depending on your configuration, hardware-enforced DEP may be disabled for 32-bit programs.
For more information about DEP, about DEP configuration, and for a list of Windows Operating Systems that support hardware DEP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:875352 A detailed description of the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature in Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, and Windows Server 2003For information about how to configure memory protection in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc700810.aspx

To confirm that hardware DEP is working in WindowsTo confirm that hardware DEP is working in Windows, use one of the following methods.Method 1: Use the Wmic command-line toolYou can use the Wmic command-line tool to examine the DEP settings. To determine whether hardware-enforced DEP is available, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_AvailableIf the output is "TRUE," hardware-enforced DEP is available.
To determine the current DEP support policy, follow these steps.
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicyThe value returned will be 0, 1, 2 or 3. This value corresponds to one of the DEP support policies that are described in the following table.
DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicy property valuePolicy LevelDescription2OptIn (default configuration)Only Windows system components and services have DEP applied3OptOutDEP is enabled for all processes. Administrators can manually create a list of specific applications which do not have DEP applied1AlwaysOnDEP is enabled for all processes0AlwaysOffDEP is not enabled for any processesNote To verify that Windows is running with hardware DEP enabled, examine the DataExecutionPrevention_Driversproperty of the Win32_OperatingSystem class. In some system configurations, hardware DEP may be disabled by using the /nopae or /execute switches in the Boot.ini file. To examine this property, type the following command at a command prompt:wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_DriversMethod 2: Use the graphical user interfaceTo use the graphical user interface to determine whether DEP is available, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type wbemtest in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. In the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester dialog box, click Connect.
  3. In the box at the top of the Connect dialog box, type root\cimv2, and then click Connect.
  4. Click Enum Instances.
  5. In the Class Info dialog box, type Win32_OperatingSystem in the Enter superclass name box, and then click OK.
  6. In the Query Result dialog box, double-click the top item.

    Note This item starts with "Win32_OperatingSystem.Name=Microsoft..."
  7. In the Object editor dialog box, locate the DataExecutionPrevention_Available property in the Properties area.
  8. Double-click DataExecutionPrevention_Available.
  9. In the Property Editor dialog box, note the value in the Value box.
If the value is TRUE, hardware DEP is available.Notes
  • To determine the mode in which DEP is running, examine the DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicy property of the Win32_OperatingSystem class. The table at the end of Method 1 describes each support policy value.
  • To verify that hardware DEP is enabled in Windows, examine the DataExecutionPrevention_Drivers property of the Win32_OperatingSystem class. In some system configurations, hardware DEP may be disabled by using the/nopae or /execute switches in the Boot.ini file.

How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows


The Hiberfil.sys hidden system file is located in the root folder of the drive where the operating system is installed. The Windows Kernel Power Manager reserves this file when you install Microsoft Windows. The size of this file is approximately equal to the amount of random access memory (RAM) that is installed on the computer.
The computer uses the Hiberfil.sys file to store a copy of the system memory on the hard disk when the hybrid sleep setting is turned on. If this file is not present, the computer cannot hibernate.
Hibernation is made unavailable when you set the value of the Hibernate after setting to Never by using the Power Options item in Control Panel. To make hibernation unavailable, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER.
To make hibernation available, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate on, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

My asus m50vc don't hibernate with win 7


You could either be out of room, meaning you have less Hard Drive space than RAM you have. Or hibernation could be disabled. You can re-enable it through Control Panel - Power Settings.

Window Vista problem??


If you receive this error message or encounter difficulties when attempting to launch Pro Tools using Windows Vista disabling DEP may solve the problem.

This option disables "Data Execution Prevention", a feature of Windows that can sometimes cause errors. This won’t harm anything, but also isn’t always necessary.

How to Disable DEP:

1. Click "Start"
2. Click "All Programs"
3. Click "Accessories"
4. Right Click on "Command Prompt"
5. Left click on "Run as Administrator"
6. Click the Allow button if it asks you for permission
7. Type or copy and paste this into the command prompt window:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff


8. Hit enter and you should see the confirmation: Operation Completed Successfully
9. Reboot and DEP should be off.

If you would like to re-enable DEP enter the following into the command prompt window:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

Hit enter and you should see the confirmation: Operation Completed Successfully. After restarting the computer, DEP will be re-enabled.
