After uploading some pictures from my "old" comp to a new one with Windows XP, Service Pak2, I started getting a pop-up error message that says "To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program", being Windows Explorer. There is a box to tick for "close message" Then the next box says "Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close". Then I can choose to either send error report or not. How do I fix this problem and stop it from shutting down IE. Thanks for the help..... :tazz:

im not sure if u want to disable it, but u can still have DEP on for only windows programs. To do this, go to my comopuer properties, then the advanced tab, then performance, and their is a tab their caled Data Execution Prevention and here u can select 'Turn on DEP for essentail windows programs and services only'
that should stop the messages

Thanks for the reply Pod0087. You were a big help but I chose the other option listed on the final page since the one you said to check was already checked. By choosing the other option, the pop-up error message is gone.... Thanks again!!! :tazz:
