    Windows DEP only fully works with AMD64 and Intels new EM64T. There is a good reason why MS chose not to enable it with all programs and so its better you leave it that way.

    Yes they did it that way so there wouldn't be so many software issues with all the people now days after ring0, I am guessing.
    & also poorley programed software.

    I like this part and really don't see anything wrong with MS trying to make things safer. Kind of a process guard in a way.

    "DEP can help prevent some exploits in which a virus or other attack tool has injected executable code into a process and then attempted to execute the injected code. On a system with DEP, execution of the injected code should result in an exception. Software-enforced DEP can help mitigate against exploits of exception handling mechanisms within Windows.

    A secondary benefit of DEP relates to good engineering and best practices for application and driver developers. Data execution prevention forces developers to avoid executing code out of data pages without explicitly marking the pages as executable."

    Best to leave DEP settings as default.
