    • Click Advanced System Settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    • Under Performance, click Settings

      elect the check box next to the program that you want to turn off DEP for, and then click OK.
      If the program is not in the list, click Add. Browse to the Program Files folder, find the executable file for the program (it will have an .exe file extension), and then click Open.
