In years past, we've disabled DEP in the BIOS before we roll out a laptop. Is there any need to continue to take this step?

Don't disable it in the BIOS!  If it is disabled in the bios then it cannot be ENABLED in the OS! And DEP is something that should be enabled.

Hi.

Well, why did you do it in the first place? I have had to disable it anywhere on any device I administer.

Funny...
Now, weeks after posting, I see a typo in my recommendation :)
Of course it should have read "I haven't had to disable it anywhere on any device I administer"
Still your solution?
