Vista and Messenger Conflict RRS feed

  • Question

  • I hope this is the right place.... I am having issues with my Windows live messenger running on my Vista Home Premium Editon. The program gets shut down as soon as I click the sign in button.  A screen comes up that says "Messenger has stopped working. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is avaliable." then a small window pops up on my task bar that says "To help protect your computer,  the DEP settings have shut down your windows live messenger. " When I try to change/disable DEP settings for messenger, it doesn't allow me to. What should I do?

  • Someone named jtonline posted this solution for this problem which i was able to fix up. In the Messenger shortcut, right-click, then choose properties. In the "Advanced..." button choose "Run as operator".
