    Default Data Execution Prevention keeps closing explorer.exe for seemingly no reason

    Just recently my explorer.exe keeps getting closed due to data execution prevention.

    Nothing has really changed, do I suspect some kind of virus?

    Scanned with lots of programs, nothing's come up

    Have u installed SP2 now?

    It looks like this error can appear, when some file is corrupted.

    There's no emails in OE or Outlook stuck / that cant be sent is there

    Lovelee from here, had a similar prob. Once it was deleted it stopped crashing, when she went to the docs folder.

    This is a different computer to the one with the video card problem, had SP2 on since install a year ago (slipstreamed), last few weeks I've been getting the data execution prevention dialog, today it's doing it more than ever.

    OE seems to be fine

    I'll rerun scans and then maybe do a chkdsk, see what happens (that will be fun, on 640GB of hard drive)

    Disable DEP. See if it opens then.
