  2. From Michael:
    Disable DEP in Vista:
    Type or copy and paste this into an elevated command prompt window:

    bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

    Hit enter and you should see the confirmation: Operation Completed
    Reboot and DEP should be off.

    Use bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn
    to turn it back on.

    Hi, Caroladavies.

    Could you give us some examples of the programs that do not work? At least

    I've not turned off DEP, and none of my programs have any problems with
    accessing the Internet.

  5. You're wasting your time no-one ever says what they have a problem with its
    always some random programs. The closest I got to an answer was some Borland
    Delphi programs might give trouble. Its a shame really as a list of problem
    programs would be useful.

  6. Another example of Dennis showing his "intelligence". There is no
    no-one. It is either 'no one' or more appropriately 'nobody'. Followed
    by your other stupid but typical mangling of the language saying:
    "...what they have a problem with its always..."

    I got to ask, you finish sixth grade Dennis? Between you and Frank
    you're constant incoherent babbling and mauling of the language is
    very annoying.

    class? Guess what as*hole, the entire world is here! Get use to it you

  13. I ran into the dep issue with Quake 3, which was quite difficult to ge
    working on Vista Ultimate 64. With the DEP turned off it runs fine. M
    question is is there a way to just create an exception in the comman
    prompt for that program so that I can have DEP turned on and still ru

    I don't know about the Command Prompt, but you can create an exception
    for a 32-bit program with Computer→System Properties→Advanced System
    Settings→Performance→Settings→Data Execution Prevention.

  15. Thanks, I actually figured it out. That screen you mentioned was locke
    down. I needed to enter in the command prompt to set nx to optin rathe
    than always on. Once that was done I was able to enter the program int
    the selection list on the dep screen
