Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is security feature that first introduced in Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and is included in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Vista, plus future operating system. DEP is intended to prevent an application or service from executing code from a non-executable memory region. DEP is enforced by hardware technology that detects code that is running from the default heap and the stack and raises an exception to terminate the process when execution occurs, and software-enforcer that prevent malicious code from taking advantage of exception-handling mechanisms in Windows. In short, DEP perform additional checks on memory to prevent malicious code or exploits from running on the system by shut down the process once detected.

However, Data Execution Prevention may accidentally shut down legitimate process from valid applications or services, particularly third-party installers used by software developers that release their products for download through the Web, or software programs that are less commonly used. To make thing worse, DEP normally does not or fails to display or show any warning or information or acknowledgment message prompt that can let you know that DEP has shut down a process, thus causing you unaware of the reason why your setup file cannot run, or why your computer cannot start a service and etc.

To see the status of DEP:
Launch an elevated command prompt shell with administrative privileges and credentials. To do so, users need to log on to Windows Vista with a user account with administrator rights. Right click on the Command Prompt icon and select “Run as Administrator”

Execute the following command:

wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicy

Press Enter.

Look at the number display on the screen. The number indicates the DEP status which reads as follows:

* 0 =AlwaysOff – DEP is disabled for all processes
* 1 =AlwaysOn – DEP is enabled for all processes
* 2 =OptIn – DEP is enabled for Windows system components and services (this is the default setting)
* 3 =OptOut – DEP is enabled for all processes except for those Administrators identified

To switch DEP
Then execute the following command:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

If you regret your decision and now wants to enable or turn back on the DEP protection for your Windows Vista, simply use the following command instead:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn
