Agreed. I think risky may be the wrong word though. E.g. typically usability
is so greatly impacted, especially when ActiveX controls are needed by some
web apps, that it is impractical to use that option as anything but the diagnostic
it was designed to be.

In another subthread the OP has disclosed that it looked as if the Yahoo! toolbar
was the culprit, so that was disabled but the symptom continued.

Actually I cross-posted to try to get some ideas for diagnosis.
FWIW I have never seen a DEP crash. Does drwtsn32.log record it?
E.g. to capture Stack Back Trace for the crashing thread?
Alternatively would ProcMon capture one?
Also, can we assume that DEP support is unchanged in Vista?
E.g. the only detailed KB article about is still
<title>A detailed description of the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature
in Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005,
and Windows Server 2003</title>
and it doesn't contain a single mention of Vista. <eg>
