DMS keeps telling me that it needs to close explorer.exe to keep viruses and spyware from infecting my machine. however I can not figure out what I have or why this keeps happening. It does it every 5 minutes and it wants my to close Windows Explorer because it has encountered an error.

1. On the My Computer icon right click with your mouse and choose Properties. (My Computer can be found on the desktop and/or the Start menu depending on how you have your Windows XP setup.)

2. A small window will have appeared called: System Properties. Look for the "tab" along the top called Advanced, now click it.

3. Now look for the section called Performance and click the button called Settings.

4. You will now see a new window appear called Performance Options, click the tab along the top called Data Execution Prevention

CLICK THIS ONE

Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select
