    The DEP on my system just wouldn't let me turn it off. When OneCare informed
    me that it has blocked a program from accessing the internet, DEP closed down
    OneCare so that I cannot opt to allow the program. When I go to Help centre
    to seek guidance, DEP shuts down Help & Support. I then went to System to
    change its setting, it shuts down Advanced System Settings before I can do

    I have virtually identical problems but in my case DEP keeps blocking
    "Windows Event Notifications Service." For some reason this results in
    making the Windows Vista interface look very much like a Windows 98 interface
    (for example: most of the menus have that old grey color, tacky 3-D look, the
    buttons have become blocky, and even the task bar reverts to the old
    rectangular grey one with the rectangular start button.) To my knowledge, I
    don't have that OS installed on this computer. This has been going on for
    months and I've finally become fed up with it because it happens very
    randomly. Can you please tell me why this is happening?
