I am so irritated by this stupid program. I have disabled DEP, I disabled PAE which supposedly was a sure-fire way to eliminate DEP - and I still have programs coming up as stopped from execution by DEP! How can I permanently eliminate this annoying thing so it doesn't trouble me anymore? I run Vista Home Premium x64. DEP has never once stopped a virus, but it is constantly stopping programs I want to run.

As I said, I have disabled DEP in the standard way.

I have also disabled PAE, which was supposed to be something DEP relied on and could not possibly function without.

I am still getting notices that DEP is terminating programs.

That is the problem.

I've never heard of that before. Either DEP is disabled or it's not. Something is a bit odd here.

"PAE is supported only on 32-bit versions of the Windows operating system. 64-bit versions of Windows do not support PAE." Quote from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/gg487503.aspx .

So I'm curious as to how PAE enters into your topic.

Let's take a look at some data.

Please download MiniToolBox , save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
List last 10 Event Viewer log
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions and Memory size.

Click Go and paste the content into your next post.

Also...please follow direections at Publish a Snapshot using Speccy - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic323892.html/page__p__1797792#entry1797792 .
