I have a critical app that is being closed by DEP.

I have disabled DEP in the BIOS.
I have changed my boot.ini to properly read /NoExecute=AlwaysOff, and verified that DEP is completely greyed out in the advanced systems properties tab.
I have also tried logging in with another administrator profile.

Yet it continues to run and block my app

Please help, thanks!
