Data Execution Prevention error followed by SVChost.exe error

I have a Sony VGN- FS640/W laptop That seems to be running OK but I get a Data Execution Prevention error when it boots followed by a svchost.exe application error 0x00ce96bc.  Then it seems to be fairly ok after that however the SVCHOST.exe Application error comes back when I try various things such as double clicking on My Computer.  I first get the flashlight for 20 seconds, then the svchost.exe error and then finally the contents of the drive show up.  I have scanned for viruses and Spyware and it is clean.  I still get the errors if I disable all startup items and non-microsoft service as well as in safe mode.

Try turning off DEP. These instructions will help:

Hopefully after that  these errors will go away.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Ok, I finally found it and I should have known.  All the problems went away when I uninstalled an HP AIO printer.  I am really starting to hate HP AIO printers they cause more problems than Norton Antivirus.

Open My Computer, right click on properties. Select the Advanced tab. Under Preformance click on settings and select the Data Exe Prevention tab.

It seems that any malacious script/code is trying to overwrite the memory and the Microsoft DEP technology is preventing the malacious script/code to overwrite it in memory. Try update the OS and the Antivirus and the problem would be solved.

Prior to solving the problem by uninistalling HP AIO printer (see my comment above), I had uninstalled Antivirus completely and installed all Windows updates but it did not help the problem.
