Windows 7: Which DEP setting should be turned on?

If you removed these programs & they are still pooping up, there are probably registry keys/files left behind doing this. Most program uninstallers do a lousy job of removing everything and leave keys behind.

From what I found about RCHelper, here is a link:

rchelper.exe - What is rchelper.exe?

You can either do a registry/file search and find any keys/files related to it and manually remove them, or you can run Revo uninstaller, which does a thorough search and removes the reg keys & leftover files. The free version will work fine, unless you actually need the options provided with the paid version.

Revo Uninstaller: Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Warning: If you decide to manually remove the files from the registry, make sure you back it up before proceeding.

As to the path, you could do a search on your HD for the first two. The last one I fear will return a great number of hits since MS updates will use this one quite alot.
Yes indeed i could deleted them or un-check.

I was just amaze that those programs that had been removed since quite a while now, still appear somewhere even after some cleaning task. The two first both belonging from from a Registry Cleaner program.

Yeah the last one might be near impossible to trace!!

I'm using DEP option 1 most of the time, that's maybe why i saw them just now (I tried option 2 because of this thread), I do not want a popup dialog more on the system Os.
Non, I'm curious to know if after you have removed the entries, do they come back when you re-open the DEP exception list? Sometimes they will remain after removing them. I think when this happens, there is sequence to removing them.
Hi Greg S, i try that in a minute....I let you know!

@Borg 386, i do not find any registry services for those entries.

I know what is RCHelper.exe, i've installed few months ago "Registry Clean Expert" myself...

Well, i allowed option 2 and unchecked the 3 entries, then reboot...It came with them again but they were checked boxes, i deleted the first two entries.

I'm rebooting now to see if those entries reappear.

Damned!! Those entries reappear checked again!

Might give my first use ever to Revo Uninstaller!

EDIT:
Revo Uninstaller didn't find any trace of it even after refresh the list more than three times.
Back to Option 1, the time to analyze the situation!

Try just un-checking them, then close the exception dialog. Re-Open the dialog but this time check them and select remove. Also see if they are here in the registry

Registry path - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers

Hey, Tried what you suggested before but they do constantly reappear checked.

BUT! I found the registry entries (see attached thumbnail) and deleted them...

I'm actually rebooting and let you know if they got rid in the DEP Tab.

Wow, your quick! I was going to give the typical Export the key just above the ones you were going to delete for a just in case which in this case would have been pointless since no harm could come from just deleting those three entries. I'm glad you fixed it!
