DEP shouldn't be disabled unless you're coding and you need to
troubleshoot something, that's why it's "SEVEN *******" clicks away.
It's not something that's supposed to be turned off unless you know what
These DEP options is also in XP and 2k, it's not really a Vista thing.
People just found it sometimes helps with some applications.
XP x64 is probably worse than Vista, but I'll let you find those
problems on your own. I've heard it's better, but most of the good fixes
were saved for Vista x64.
Vista is supported, unless the developer of the software you're trying
to run didn't think it was important to make sure their programs worked
with Vista. Maybe you should talk to the software developer? See if they
plan to support their programs in the future. Dev kits for Vista were
out for 2.5 years before the OS hit market. Really no excuse to not be
ready for it.
