Greyed out Data Execution Prevention

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, I use Vista Home Premium 64bit.
I struggled to disable DEP by using the cmd prompts. When I went back to system-advanced-performance-data execution prevention I noticed that all options were greyed out. It says at the bottom of that window that I need to be the administrator and use bcdedit.exe to change the settings. How do "un-grey" DEP?

I want to disable DEP so it does not automatically close the program. I thought there might be a difference if I permantly disable DEP or making that program exceptional to the DEP. I found no difference. I do not know why this DEP feature became greyed-out and I want to UnGrey-it.
