    IE7 crashes when memory protection turned on

    Vista Ultimate: When I set "Enable memory protection to mitigate online
    attacks" to ON in advanced IE settings, the IE7 won't start. It crashes
    instead, with a message that DEP has shut it down because of improper use of
    memory.
    Anyone knows why is this?

    It is probably a toolbar or addin that is causing the crash. There should be
    an error in the event logs. In the details it sometimes tells you a module
    name that is causing the problem.

    It's the Google toolbar. However, the problem only exists if I enable the
    toolbar AND select "Enable memory protection to mitigate online attacks". If
    I run the toolbar without the memory protection, IE works fine. What exactly
    is the conflict? What is really the memory protection? Am I safe without it?

    You are safer with it on than off. It does cause problems with many toolbars
    and addins. It's off by default. Some software developers are fixing their
    plugins so that they work with DEP enabled. Adobe is one. I guess Google is
    not.

    I have experienced "Error" generated and W IE was "closing down program".
    After reading this threat I disabled the Ask Tool Bar leaving Google in
    tact.
    And it helped so far.
