Win XP "Data Execution Prevention"? Can't print.

I was mapping 2 of my clients computers to a single printer located on a third computer and came across a Win XP warning that I've never seen before.  It was a "Data Execution Prevention" warning and it would not let me print a test page.  The printer is a Canon D800 series.  Win XP recognizes the printer, it is mapped properly but the DEP warning will not let me print even a test page.  How can I get around this or turn off DEP?

Thats a new feature of Windows in an attempt to be more secure and is a pain in the BEEP!!!!

Open up system properties from the control panel click system > advanced tab > under performance click settings > click the data execution prevention tab > ususally works OK of set to first bullet, turn on dep for essential windows programs........................
