Windows 7: Removed 2 malwares, now need help with DEP

The time has come for you to fill out your system specs. When you do, then at the bottom, underneath where your name appears, there is "My System Specs" in small and difficult to read letters.

Fortunately, one quickly learns where that is and we click on that to instantly inform us as to your system. No need to try to search an entire thread for info that may not even be there.


Please follow this procedure. I recommend Speccy, but that's personal choice.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

St8kOut,

WIN + PAUSE key | System Protection (left-side) | Advanced tab |
Settings button ( in the Performance section) | Data Execution Prevention tab |
Turn on DEP for all programs and services except for those I select: Radio Button |
OK button | OK button

WIN = key with the microsoft logo on top


That's how one normally turns DEP on and off.

If you turn it on, does it stay on?

The button stays 'on' but microsoft's Fix It program keeps saying it was disabled and the fix supposedly re-enables it. Same message everytime I run it. Could the Fix It program be wrong?

Yes. My guess would also be that the FixIt program is wrong. In a few hours I will go looking for reading and writing DEP values using PowerShell.

I don't know if this will help but what the heck. My DEP is set to protect Windows programs and services; the top one. I have never changed it. It's been that way from the install as far as I know. I don't know which one is better.

Actually, the other setting is better which protects you against all programs.

If you ever run across a program that needs kernel access, then you can add the program as an exception.

I've never needed to add one.

St8kout,

I've been playing around with the DEP and would like your you to run a PowerShell one liner for me and post back the output which will be a file on your Desktop named BCDEDITinfo.TXT


Here's how to run a one-liner:
# STEP 1 ** RUN POWERSHELL AS ADMINISTRATOR
WIN key | type POWERSHELL | do NOT hit ENTER |
in the PROGRAMS list, right-click on WINDOWS POWERSHELL |
choose "Run as administrator" |
Click on the YES button (if such appears)

# STEP 2 ** COPY AND PASTE
COPY the script using CTRL+C,
PASTE into Powershell
---Right-Click at the PowerShell Prompt
---(Ctrl+V does not work)

WIN key = key with Microsoft logo on top

Here's the one-liner:
&$env:windir\system32\bcdedit /enum > $env:userprofile\desktop\bcdeditinfo.txt

Here's the file.

Something else has been happening. For the last two days Windows won't shut down anymore. I let it go on for about 20 minutes one time to see what would happen. Eventually I had to hold down the power button to turn it off. It wasn't doing a microsoft update or anything, or if it was there was no message that you usually see.

Restarts seem to be ok. It's just the 'Shutdown' not working now.
