Data execution prevention problem

    The last few days Windows keeps closing down Windows Explorer because of DEP
    coming in. It usually happens when I click on an AVI file, either left
    click to play with WMP or right click to try another player. I know the
    AVI`s are safe because in some cases I`d just finished making them. Happens
    with other AVI`s and programs too. I`ve run spyware, A.V & trojan hunter
    programs and all seems clear. Windows has latest updates.
    Any thoughts on why this should suddenly start happening?
    Win XP Home.
    TIA

    Do you know how to disable DEP for certain programs?
