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

DEP/WMI problem


WMI is a part of Windows that allows other remote computers to control your own. This means that someone has infected your pc with a rootkit that has taken partial control of it. Good rootkits are virtually undetectable and practically impossible to remove. Recover all your files and do a full reinstall - when , during install, you will be asked what type of format do you want select full , not quick.

Click on Data Execution Prevention and Choose turn ON option.
add the IE in that list.

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.

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
