Has anyone experienced a problem with Windows' Data Execution Prevention (DEP)? Our WebMO server (9.1 Enterprise) and the associated computational code runs on a MacOSX cluster (Server 10.5.6), but many of our students and faculty connect from Windows machines. I personally don't touch Windows, so this all comes from people reporting their experiences to me (Mac OSX / Safari functions flawlessly).

Apparently, Internet Explorer and Safari (under Windows) crash when the builder window is opened. The end-user reporting this believes this is due to DEP shutting down the browser. Interestingly, Mozilla seems to be fine. Has anyone else seen these problems, or might this be a misconfiguration of our Windows "image", as maintained by our ITS department?

Thanks as always!

Upon consultation with the end-user, this appears to be isolated to one machine for reasons which are not apparent.
