dep problem re: IE7 shutdown

DEP problems!!

My internet IE7 keeps stopping, citing DEP issues. As you know the DEP prevents the computer from allowing programs, which the system deems harmful, to start to protect the computer from these files.

The question is: How do I know which file(s) are trying to start that are causing the DEP to kick in? Does DEP keep a log? When IE7 is running, I have no other programs working so it must be something "behind the scene."

Thanks in advance.

Run your anti virus and check for problems.

Type event viewer in search and see what you can learn.

Try turning off your Anti Virus and fire wall

Download and test your system for malware. Then test once a week.

My guess is that there is something in your computer that you want to remove.
