It's simply a feature that can be turned on or off, or be configured.I'll show you how to turn it off, but then I'll tell you why you shouldn't and what you should do instead to solve your problem. Start by realizing that as far as your computer is concerned, everything is just numbers. That's all stored as numbers with each number representing a different letter or character. Numbers too: the instructions that tell the computer what to do are simply numbers.Is there any way to get rid of Data Execution Prevention completely?DEP is blocking my Medal Of Honor games on my Vista x64 machine.Defrag works on my other partitions - just not on "C".

However, what you suggested would be sort of hard to do if DEP disallows even my access to Control Panel and the things in it.

• Configure Exceptions to DEP If you have a program you know is legitimate that happens to cause DEP errors, you can add it to the list of exceptions. I don't happen to have Irfan View, but I'll use Foxit Software's PDF reader as a random example: In this example the program was located in " C:\Program Files\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\Foxit Reader.exe".

As you can see in the image above, the default DEP setting is to "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:". The program you're looking for will, of course, be elsewhere, but most likely somewhere within "C:\Program Files".

I followed the route given by the "crash message" but I want it off my machine. First let's be clear: Data Execution Prevention, or DEP, isn't something you "remove" or "get off your machine".

It wouldn't allow me to view photos inside a photo folder ...
