For some reason, lately, When I'm adjusting my computer's volume, I get a Data Execution Prevention error saying that it has closed Windows Explorer to protect me. When I close the message, I get an error saying that Explorer crashed and when I click "Close" nothing else happens (Explorer doesn't close). So it's not a very big deal but I'm wondering why it does that.
