Recently, DEP has caused explorer.exe to shutdown whenever a user logs on, or while doing various windows tasks. A message box like this one pops up
The computers that are doing this are all Core 2 Duo's or Pentium 4's. Computers are on an domain, and this only happens under domain accounts. If you login as a local administrator their is no problem. I was wondering if anyone had any insight on why this is happening and how it could be stopped. I must also add that this happened right after the images were deployed onto the computers, and they have very limited software installed (Office 2000, Adobe Pro 7, Flash Player, Java Engine, thats all)
I know one way of stopping it (for the main part) is disabling DEP for explorer.exe. However this is a last choice due to security concerns. I am also not sure of what security holes would be opened up if DEP was disabled for explorer.exe, and would appreciate any comments about possibly security concerns.
