I'll assume you are running windows XP.

1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under the Startup and Recovery field.

3. In the System startup field, click Edit. The Boot.ini file opens in Notepad.

4. In Notepad, click Find on the Edit menu.

5. In the Find what box, type /noexecute, and then click Find Next.

6. In the Find dialog box, click Cancel.

7. Replace policy_level with AlwaysOff

Example of a Boot.ini file with /NoExecute set to AlwaysOff-

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=AlwaysOff
Then, restart your computer, DEP should now be off.
