As the topic says, I can't disable DEP for explorer. I went to my computer, properties, advanced, performance advanced, DEP. I disabled it for explorer and it tells me I may need to restart my computer. It still runs it, so I figure I need to restart. I do and it closes again. I go to the DEP and see that it was re-enabled. Is this a known issue? If so, can someone help me with it? If not, can someone still help me with it?

I found this below on the MS Knowledge base. It might be a place to start

How to determine that hardware DEP is available and configured on your computer

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912923/en-us

Also found this:

How to Configure Memory Protection in Windows XP SP2

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...p/depcnfxp.mspx

Hope one or both of these helps.

Ok, new problem. DEP is disabled (thank you guys), but explorer still closes. I do something like close IE or open a program, even empty my Recycle Bin and it closes. It doesn't happen everytime I do something, it happens randomly.

It's not restarting my system, it's just closing explorer. If I have a window up and explorer closes, the window is still there and functional. Just my desktop icons, any open folders and the taskbar disappear, everything else stays.
