    Exclamation WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER- DATA EXECUTION PREVENTION PROBLEM

    HEY can anyone help me with this problem

    i have windows vista and have just downloaded windows live messenger from the msn website. there was no problems downloading. when download was complete i logged in and everything was fine.

    the next day when i turned the computer on and went online, a pop up appeared stating "windows live messenger has stopped working. windows can check online for a solution to the problem". it gave 2 options -1 was to check online for a solution and close the program, the 2nd was to close the program. either choice didnt work.

    in the bottom right corner of the screen was another pop up. it said " windows live messenger has closed. to help protect your computer data execution prevention has closed windows live messenger".

    i tryed to uninstall and restall but it still has the same problem. it will work the first time but then not work when u come back on the next day.

    does ne1 no how to fix this so i can use windows live messenger without this happening again. its getting quite annoying.

    any help is appreciated. thanks

    It looks like this can happen if youre using an Acer system.

    Is this an Acer computer / laptop??

    If it is a laptop (I think this is ONLY for laptops), go here

    Or try this file

    Or follow the post by Lorettablonde, to disable DEP
