I like this feature.
My bet is you have drivers or some software that has an update... and you haven't found it... or they haven't released it.
Fully installed SP2 last week. Now every time I go into control panel a message pops up telling me Windows is closing this program to protect my computer from a malicious program. I have McAfee. I don't need DEP to shut me down every time control panel is opened. Also pops up when I highlight my son's video game file that I want to delete. DEP is worse than a virus. How can it be disabled?
The issue I see from what you wrote will never be resolved by "autoupdates". Microsoft doesn't do drivers and I'm seeing that many of today's owners are blissfully unaware about that glaring issue.
Just watch these boards are people complain about this or that and see if its an out-of-date driver, BIOS or even a virus/worm/trojan/parasite. Next, read how they "blame Billy". All we can do is to discuss the issue until they figure out that Microsoft only is supply a portion of their system.
Jon and Bob;
A microsoft tech explained the problem with the Data Execution Feature of SP2 as peculiar to my AMD64 chip.
"Based on my experience, this kind of behavior may occur if the following factor is true: This problem occurs when an incompatible version of the common language runtime is installed on a computer that uses an AMD64 processor." We fixed this by going into the DEP exceptions list and checking "Run a DLL as an App." Since DEP was also shutting down Windows Explorer and even Internet Explorer, I checked those too.
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?
