What exactly did you do in CMD prompt?

To turn on DEP, go to Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings > Settings button in the Performance section > Data Execution Protection tab > Turn on DEP, Click Apply and OK to exit. Is that the DEP screen you can't access?

Or try this:

Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt, right-click on Command Prompt and choose 'Run As Administrator'. In the CMD window, type:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

and press Enter. You should see a message saying that 'The operation completed Successfully.' Close the CMD window and reboot your computer. See if that helps.

Thanks for your help tried both of these ideas in both cases the radio buttons in the DEP screen are both greyed out so what know using a previous
restore point doesn`t help either
