Data Execution Prevention

  1. I have an Acer Aspire AM1100 DEP keeps stopping everything I try to open. I tried using bcdedit.exe /set {current} alwaysoff in CMD.exe but I get this message "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The maximum number of secrets that may be stored in a single system has been exceeded." What does this mean and how do I get around it?

    One post in another forum suggested "too many secrets" could be caused by a virus/rootkit. Maybe check for those?

    Can't you change DEP settings from Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Performance -> Data Execution Prevention ? No bcdedit tinkering needed there.
