Question data execution prevention window

have recently done a windows update and once again Microsuck put something annoying on my PC.
a window appears out of nowhere called --- DATA EXECUTION PREVENTION --- and it seems to only come up when i have windows explorer open. have yet to discover if its a certain directory that is setting it off.

oh yeah, and when it pops up it insists i close windows explorer

does anyone else have this issue (read: annoying problem)?
is there a way to turn it off?

my PC is generally well kept (no virus, malware etc).
am using winXP PRO SP3
win7 Ultimate 64bit /// 2 x 24" LG Monitors /// Intel Core i7 920 with Xigmatek HDT-S1283 /// ASUS P6T WS PRO /// 12gigs of OCZ Gold XTC Triple Channel 6x2gig DDR3 1333MHz PC12800 /// XFX Nvidia GTX 260 core 216 /// Corsair TX750W /// Cooler Master 690 /// HDD Total = FIVE TB
