Sorry. I still stand by my comments. It is dangerous to disable DEP and, like one of your links, it shouldn't be done automatically. DEP stopped the program from functioning for a reason - maybe a virus or malware was attempting to circumvent the programs security. So it is dangerous for simply everyone disabling DEP unless they want to disable it temporarily to run a program to purchase a product or run a program that might use e-sellerate to verify whether your product is legal or not. BTW, all FSDT products use E-Sellerate and I have most of them installed. I have DEP enabled and have never had a problem with it or any other security program. I just want to make sure that members here at AVSIM are aware of what they are doing if and when they disable DEP in FSX or any other product.
I do agree with you that there is a risk involved with disabling DEP, however, with common security practices (virus protection, regular virus/malware scans, not opening attachments or links from unknown or suspect looking emails/address, etc.) you can mitigate these risks substantially. For me, the rewards (no more StackHas/BEX errors and CTDs) have far out-weighted the risks associated with disabling DEP. But as with any tweak, change, or system modification, it is at the risk and discretion of the end user.
