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!

Turn on DEP
Delete the program out of that list in DEP
Disable DEP (if want)
Reboot

I know it seems totally backwards but it works.  Disabling DEP and leaving the program in the list the server will continue to try and launch the program over and over...
