Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Windows freezing Hi Nsindi, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but this weekend has been really busy. I have tried turning on the DEP as requested but still no change. I opened up the 'My Pics' folder, right clicked on an image, opened in picture and fax viewer, closed the windows and the freeze happened again. The thing which is amazing me is that it is not only happening on 1 computer but 3 (1 laptop, 2 desktops and all in different houses). Do you think it could be an update issue from Microsoft? Thanks Dom

    Hi Nsindi, I have just tried a few things and have noticed that the freezes only occur which I use the right click within the my music or my pics folder. Left clicking does not seem to create a problem.

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:

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.

  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.

  8. Double-click DataExecutionPrevention_Available.
  9. In the Property Editor dialog box, note the value in the Value box.

  • 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.

Installing AVG 8.5 on Windows XP professional getting error 0xc0070002. What is the fix?

Your computer's processor blocked an activity of a program by stopping the computer from working to prevent the activity from being executed (also known as DEP or Data Execution Prevention) and giving such error instead.
Try turning off the DEP for all programs by:
- opening Start > Control Panel > System
- Click on 'Advanced' tab
- In the performance area, click 'Settings' button
- A new window will appear
- Click on 'Data Execution Prevention' tab
- Click on the upper radio button (run DEP only for Windows services)
- Restart your computer

If it doesn't work or is turned off for all programs already then there seems to be a problem with your Windows (since you said that IE takes 100% CPU process), or the antivirus program isn't really compatible with your hardware and/or driver software.

thanks and regards
kindly rate this solution

Desktop doesn't appear on the computer.

hi there, 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.

i would suggest that the ram in your computer has possibly broken down over a period, may i recommend obtaining some new ram, if you go to they can provide you with information that tells you which ram you have in your PC.

Windows Freezing

Boot the system in safe mode
1.) restart the system
2.) pump the F8 Key until a screen comes up with different options
3.) select safe mode,

Try right clicking there and see what happens,, I,m guessing here this is a result of damages done by a previoulsy removed virus (GUESSING) it is possible that the same one could have been shard by all 3,,

I'd advise you'd uninstall norton and use the new avg free
Let me know what hgappens and we can tgake this a bit further
