Glad you have found a solution that works for you; I'd leave DEP enabled as it's a good thing; you'll find some info about it in the tutorial at the link below.

Thanks Kid! So are you saying that it's better to have it set where it is- Enabled for all programs, instead of just being enabled for Windows essential programs?

Yes, I have mine enabled for all ...

Just remember some games ect. you may have to add an exception in DEP for, but I wouldn't be too concerned with that right now, just leave it as it is.


Some hateware wants to rum from the RAM and DEP stops that.

If you have to make the change, remember the purpose of DEP, it is for security. If you are going to change the settings, to less secure, make sure that you have adequate security. I suggest Microsoft Securities and malwarebytes scan at least once a week.
