After my computer has been idle for a few hours I find a dialog box with the
message saying the Host Process has stopped working. When I click the close
button, I see a help ICON in my system tray. When I click, up pops a Windows
Help and Support box. It's open to a section titled "What is Data Execution
Prevention?". It gives an explanation of DEP.
Does anyone know why this is happening? It's more of an annoyance than a
major problem, but I wonder if there's something wrong that I need to
address, or if this happens because something tries to execute while my
computer is in sleep mode.
