Windows XP Problem - freezing when folders close

Hi nsindi,

I Have tried what you said but once I get to the Data Execution Prevention window there is no option for turn it off. The two options given are:

Turn of DEP for essential windows programs and services only (this is the one selected)

Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.

I have tried option two but when I click add (to add 'my pics' to the list) the browse box which opens will only let you put executable files in the list and not folders. It just keeps opening folders.

Thanks

Dom

When you got to that window, was there anything listed already? If it's blank then you just select the bottom one (progs and serv) and click apply

Windows data execution prevention won't allow itunes to open!


ok try this then.
Press [windows]+Pause/Break to open the system menu (or control panel -> system) and press advanced systems settings on the side. Go to the advanced Tab, and press settings. Go over to the D.E.P. (Data Execution Prevention) tab, and press add, then add in iTunes and whatever else you need.

Data execution prevention ERROR


Hi,
I doubt that this has nothing to do with counterfeiting and you will get a little box in the bottom right hand side of the screen saying so.
The problem should be fixed by running a System Restore and take the machine back to a date before the problems occurred.

Be sure to backup your documents and music. Don't wanna lose those.



Good luck.

Problem with computer


Hi. I'm Azrul from Malaysia. Your windows installation might be corrupted and the system files might have been modified by a virus. Here is a possible solution for you:

Insert your Windows XP Setup disk in the CD rom drive. Set your boot priority to the cd rom. Wait for the option to repair your Windows XP installation. Do not format or reinstall. Just repair.

Windows XP Freezing


Hi, Thank you for your reply. I answer to your questions:

1. No, I have not recently installed new RAM
2. I have just made my laptop freeze so I could check the event viewer to see if anything came up - butno error is reported in the system, application or security logs. (PS: to cause the freeze I opened up My Pictures, right clicked on and image, clicked open. The image opened in picture viewer. I closed picture view without any problems but once I closed the My Pics folder the computer froze.)

Thanks
