Latest Security Updates cause Data Execution Protection errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since the latest Windows updates I have been inundated with Data Execution Protection errors in IE 11. I have tired the troubleshoot of tuning off add-ons but the error continues. I only have Norton 360 toolbar as an add on anyway.

    I can't isolate the problem - any suggestions?

    As a side issue I also can't launch Google Chrome - it crashes on launch from a new installation.

    I am running Windows 8.1 on a Lenovo X1 carbon laptop.

    ... ans: check for updates from Nortons for updates to their software.
    from IE select Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, uncheck "enable third party browser extensions". Close and restart IE for the changes to take affect.
