    Right click in My Computer and select Propereties.
    Click on Advanced System Settings, on the next window click Settings.
    Click on the Data Execution Prevention tab and turn it off.
    But take note that you are compromising your Computers security.
    DEP is not a new program added in Vista, it was implemented since the first NT system, although I'm not shure was it used in NT 4.0..
