I regularly get an error message telling me that Data Execution Prevention (DEP) on my Vista system has shut down the Malware Protection program. I am running FireFox.

I could shut down DEP protection for the module in question if only I knew the name of the offending program.

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks for contacting us here. To know the faulty module, we suggest that you can use Vista's Reliability Monitor to identify the faulty program. Here's an online doc from Microsoft to guide you using the tool:
Start Reliability Monitor

Hope this helps!
