F.E.A.R Combat and DEP

By Technochicken

  1. I just installed FEAR combat, and when i try to open it, i get the message "Fear has stopped working" DEP has stopped it, and i was wondering whether it would be safe to disable DEP for FEAR. The only thing I've ever disabled DEP before for was a windows service,(COM surrogate) so i'm not sure if it would be safe or not.

    I just disable DEP all together. It's just annoying.

    Open Windows Explorer, go to Tools>Folder Options>View
    Select Show hidden files and folders
    Untick Hide protected operating system files
    Click OK

    Browse to C:\
    Right click boot.ini, choose Properties
    Untick Read-only, click OK
    Open boot.ini
    Make this change /NoExecute=AlwaysOff
    Right click boot.ini, choose Properties
    Tick Read-only, click OK


    Enjoy your game........
