It sounds like you might want to do a few scans for viruses

I'd suggest one of these free online scans to ensure that you're not infected:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)

I have had that problem once or twice. DEP is used to slow viruses down, As long as the system is clean you can disable DEP.

1. Right click My Computer and select Properties
2. On the new window select the Advanced tab
3. In the performance section click settings
4. Select the Data Execution Prevention tab.
5. Select the Turn on DEP for essential windows programs and services only.
6. Click OK. You may need to restart after.
