I have four programs that need solutions applied. When I click on the solution and it starts to download, windows stops it and says that the DEP (data execution program) is shutting IE down to prevent the program from downloading. Now what? It has never done this before...I run windows vista. Thank you

There is an explanation here for changing DEP settings in Vista which you might find useful:-
There are FAQ's for DEP Vista here :-
If , when you need to return to the forum you could supply as much info as possible.....version of psi...insecure progs, with file paths if possible....are you using psi with the Advanced interface ?
Hope this helps.....regards,
