GP To Enable Data Execution Prevention (DEP)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a GP to enable Data Execution Prevention (DEP) on XP and Vista computers?  If not, how do others enable this on their networks (without manually going to each computer)?

    Thanks.

  • Data Execution Prevention configuration is controlled through switches in the boot.ini file. You can use a startup script using bootcfg to modify the boot.ini file. Here's a KB which describes how you can use this tool to modify the file:
