What is DEP?

http://live.pirillo.com/ – One of our Romanian viewers wanted to know how to turn off Data Execution Prevention. Every time he thumbnails a video from his camera, he gets an error.

What is DEP? Data Execution Prevention is a security technology – based in software or hardware – that keeps programs from accessing or overwriting parts of memory that it doesn't already have access to.

Keeping DEP turned on is a good idea, but if it's giving you a problem, you can turn it off:

  • Right click on "My Computer" and select Settings.
  • Click on the Advanced Tab
  • Click the settings button, under performance.
  • Select the third tab.
  • Within this tab you can turn it on for all programs, only windows services, or for all programs except programs you select.

Do you have any experience with DEP?
