Is there anyway to turn off the Data Execution Protection? It shuts down my web browsers when I try to go to certain web sites. It is so frustrating.

Wrong approach
by Jimmy Greystone / May 28, 2010 10:34 PM PDT

Wrong approach. DEP is there to help PREVENT bad things from happening to your system, so if it is being triggered, then you should find out why. Or just not go to whatever that site is, because if it's doing something that's triggering DEP to kick in, that says it's doing something that is suspicious at the very least. Maybe it's ultimately harmless on that site, but what about the next one? Do you leave your car keys in the ignition and doors unlocked, just so you don't have to be bothered to find them in your pocket?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
