Default Two Windows questions

I have a Dell notebook. I have an error message stating that Windows is preventing me from opening a program (my documents, my computer, etc.) This error message is call "Data Execution Prevention" (DEP). I am not familiar with this program. I have run multiple virus programs, and spyware and all come back negative. Any suggestions?

Next Question...
Dell, being cheap, did not send any OS disc or drivers discs. The manuel states that these are located on my hard drive now. I opened up the OS and it told me to insert my own blank cd-r to make a back up copy. This is fine with me, but now I am unable to find my drivers that will be needed to do a complete system reinstall. I am away from home for a federal police academy, and have no options if my computer crashes, since i can not do a reinstall. Anyone know how I can get all my drivers so i can reinstall windows and just start from scratch?
