Whether I'm checking my hotmail email, searching for jobs on indeed.com, or clicking on a search result from Google, the DEP keeps closing my IE8 and stating that an add-on is trying to use my system memory incorrectly. This started about 2 weeks ago, once in a while, but now it's everyday every couple of minutes. Can't get anything done. Any idea how to figure out which add-on is doing this? Please help! Thanks!

I'd take a look at the add-ons, disabling all but the essential ones...and see if the problem persists.

Since all of your references involve browsing activity only...that seems logical to me.

It's also possible that IE is damaged...but I would look at the add-ons before concluding such.

Any DEP messages when not using the Internet?

Please post exact wording for any error messages.

I only get DEP messages when using the internet:

Windows Data Execution Prevention detected an add-on trying to use system memory incorrectly. This can be caused by a malfunction or a malicious add-on.

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

To help protect your computer, Data Execution Prevention has closed Internet Explorer.

I ran internet explorer without any add-ons and it was ok. However, how would I know what add-ons I'd need to enable except for flash? There are dozens categorized under "run without permission" vs. "currently loaded" vs. "all ad-ons" (which isn't really all of them).

You'll have to do trial and error. Enable one, see if it causes the problem. If it does, you know it's the culprit. If it doesn't, disable it again (to keep from confusing things) and enable another one and see if that one causes the problem. Continue doing this until you get the error. At which point, you can disable or uninstall that extension or plugin permanently.

Once you have done that, enable the rest that you normally have enabled, and see if everything works properly.

It's the Shockwave Flash Object by Adobe. I uninstalled it and a bunch of other Adobe stuff. Reinstalled the add-on so i can watch Hulu.com. But when I tried to check my hotmail, it shut down 3 times in a row. What should I do?
