How Do I Isolate What's Trigging DEP?

    I've been using the "Photos" Screen Saver for a long time. Lately it's been
    closing with a little window that sez"Photos Screen Saver has stopped
    working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will
    close the program and notify you if a solution is available." Once I click on
    "Close Program", another window pops up to tell me that Data Execution
    Prevention is shutting it down.

    Presumably, one or more of the items in my "Pictures" folder is triggering
    DEP. I've got subfolders in there which include some movie clips and humorous
    commercials.

    Is there some way (other than trial and error) I can find out which file is
    triggering DEP so I can move it to a folder outside of "Pictures"?

    It is the program not handling memory properly, so it could be one picture
    or set on one test and another combination another time. The only solution
    is replacing the program, or you can exclude it from DEP processing.
    Microsoft Money is one program poorly written and in need of exclusion or
    replacing.
