Hi this is my first time posting here, but I've always found this site very useful in the past.

I have windows XP SP2 and have automatic updates. I had some malware problems and got help to fix it from reading your forums (thank goodness for google) and now I keep getting Data Execution Prevention error messages. The dialog box comes up when I try to backup Quicken, access control panel, open the recycle bin, my documents, my pictures, and Windows CD writing wizard. I just noticed this today, but I'm not sure when this started since I haven't tried to backup anything in a few days. I'm not sure what further information would be needed and the fact that I can't burn a CD is getting frustrating. Anything I've googled to turn off this annoying thing has said go to control panel - which doesn't help since that causes the darn error too. A friend of mine suggested to do a restore, but I'm afraid to try that right now.

Can anyone help me get this to stop?

Did you get rid of the malware by yourself or did you post a log on the forum? You might still have some remnants left over

I thought I'd gotten rid of the malware, but it appears to be back. I suppose I would have to start a new topic on that one too. I'm beginning to think this error is related to it.

Thanks for the links, I'll try them out & let you know if they worked.
