I have a UK accounting system (Sage). When I try to install updates Vista
comes back and tells me it has terminated the program for DEP reasons.
Do you know how I get around this please.

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!

See if your motherboard has NX or data exception switch in the BIOS. If your motherboard, supports DEP at the hardware level use it. I disabled DEP because of my old applications don't support it. No newer versions that support DEP. Microsoft will always tell you to leave it on. I don't know of many newer applications that fully support DEP.
