I was just wondering if I should have DEP (Data Execution Prevention) set to just essential Windows programs and services, or, all programs other than those I can put in the list.
I just noticed that it has been set to just essential Windows programs and services and I am thinking it should be set for all programs, but I do not know so I have to ask all of you.
Which setting is best and will changing it to all programs have any ill effects for my system?
Also, it says that my processor does not support hardware based DEP but Windows can use DEP software to control some types of attacks. Does that mean Windows provides that or do I need to install something else to provide it?
I just switched it to the latter but it needs the computer to be restarted to take effect and I have not restarted yet, would rather wait til I know if my system will have problems with this setting.
Thank you for any and all help
