I would get around it by obtaining a copy of the program that was properly
designed for Windows XP - let alone Windows Vista.
Your program is trying to execute code in a protected area of memory. This
is exactly what some malicious software does. This action was not desirable
under XP and it is prevented since XP service pack 2 and also in Vista.
Can it be turned off? YES!
Would I do it or recommend it? NO!
