I disabled DEP with the Command below from the Command Prompt:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

Now, i can not enable DEP with the On command:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

The options are greyed out under System Properties.
Also, my DEP exclusions are blank.  I shoud have backed up the DEP settings some how :(
I added DEP exclussions because Windows 7 freezes Video Games.

Try running "bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx OptIn" (no quotes) from an elevated cmd prompt (Start, type cmd, right-click cmd icon that appears in the start menu, choose Run as Administrator). Run the command and restart your computer. This should enable DEP after the restart.
