    Chubb, I added the link to the quoted Softpedia article. It's always courteous to provide a link back to the author, so nothing it's taken out of context, even if quoted completely.

    Thanks JRViejo. I didn't put it in the first place because I am not sure if links from softpedia is allowed, so I just quote it.

    Chubb, you're welcomed. Normally, links to articles from well known publishers are allowed, yet we keep an eye out for any rogue ones. You would have been fine to provide the link, especially in light of this Windows problem. Take care.

    Wouldnt say your lucky. There is a lot of conditions to be met to cause that error.

    “This problem occurs if the following conditions are true: Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is disabled either in the BIOS or in the operating system. The system is configured to enter hibernation or to enter hybrid sleep mode when the power button is pressed. The language version of the operating system that you are running is a double-byte character set (DBCS) language. For example, you are running a Chinese, Korean, or Japanese version of Windows 7 on the computer.”
