    Ah, ok. So here the way to disable it:

    Disable Data Execution Prevention (DEP)

    WARNING: Microsoft recommends that you do NOT disable DEP globally.
    To do this would make your computer less secure.

    In cases where DEP causes application failures, Microsoft strongly recommends that you contact the application vendor to determine if a DEP-compatible update is available.
    Installing such an update is the preferred solution for application compatibility issues with DEP.

    Disabling DEP system-wide using boot.ini

    1. Click Start, and then click ControlPanel.

    2. Under Pickacategory, click PerformanceandMaintenance.

    3. Under or Pick a Control Panel icon, click System.

    4. Click the Advanced tab, and in the Startup and Recovery area, click Settings.

    5. In the SystemStartup area, click Edit.

    6. In Notepad, click Edit and then click Find.

    7. In the Findwhat field, type /noexecute and then click FindNext.

    8. In the Find dialog box click Cancel.

    9. Replace the policy_level (for example, "OptIn" default) with "AlwaysOff” (without the quotes).

    WARNING: Be sure to enter the text carefully.

    Note: Your boot.ini file switch should now read:

    /noexecute=AlwaysOff

    10. In Notepad, click File and then click Save.

    11. Click OK to close StartupandRecovery.

    12. Click OK to close SystemProperties and then restart your computer.


    This setting does not provide any DEP coverage for any part of the system, regardless of hardware DEP support.


    Verifying DEP is Disabled

    1. Click Start, and then click ControlPanel.

    2. Under Pickacategory, click PerformanceandMaintenance.

    3. Under or Pick a Control Panel icon, click System.

    4. Click the Advanced tab.

    5. In the Performance area, click Settings and then click DataExecutionPrevention.

    6. Verify that the DEP settings are unavailable and then click OK to close PerformanceSettings.

    7. Click OK to close SystemProperties then close PerformanceandMaintenance.
