Hello, I've changed my notebook and thus had to change my OS from Win2k to WinXP Pro. I am still battling with WinXP, its preposterous firewall and other ridiculous "security" measures, especially unwelcome by somebody who uses browsers not supporting ActiveX. For instance, I consider DEP a pain the neck and here comes my question. As far as I have been able to understand, DEP should defend the system in a way similar to Process Guard's measures of defense. But then, as I do trust much more in PG (I am using 3,3 beta4) than in microsoft, couldn't I simply disable DEP and trust it in the junk bin? I would be grateful to hear expert opinion on the matter.
