:tazz: I have a wireless laptop with a netgear router and an HP2710 wireless printer. After I installed the printer software when I would start up a window would come up saying-Generic Host Process for Win 32 services has been prevented from opening by Data Execution Prevention. Sometimes the window would come up 8 to 10 times before exiting. Can I go into DEP window and allow this program or is that risky? I would appreciate any help.
Thanks,
mikez

I run Win XP Pro SP2, recently installed an hp 2610, connect to a wireless network via Centrino inside a Dell 8600 laptop. I have the same issue. Does anyone know anything about this?

Thanks,

Barry

I have done some research on this and apparently this an HP software issue. They are supposed to be coming out with a patch. In the meantime I have just discovered a workaround.Go to control panel/ performance & maintinence/ system/advanced/performance settings/ data execution prevention. When I clicked on (Turn on DEP for all programs except those that I choose) I found the Generic Host Processes for Win 32 line already in the window. I checked the box and applied and then went back to the Default (Turn on DEP for Windows programs and services only) and closed the window. I have not had a problem since. I don't know why this worked after going back to the Default setting but it did.

Thanks for the research. I tried to go to the Performance & Maintenance control panel, but did not find it. I was really surprised. I run WinXP Pro SP2 with McAfee Security Center. I don't know where the control panel went. More importantly, I don't know how to access the DEP options.

I just found out that the DEP is accessed through the System control panel.

Just downloaded the update myself and cleared my DEP window and all is well.
FYI- If anyone else has this issue it is under Critical Update on the HP Website.
Thanks,
