Two security mechanisms that are really being promoted when it comes to later versions of Windows are DEP (Data Execution Prevention) and ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization).

Microsoft have announce the upcoming release of version 2 of the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit. This allows the enforcement of DEP/ASLR on programs that do not have these mitigations implemented. Of course, applications need to be tested to ensure they work correctly with the mitigations in place.
