DEP not enabling?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and I am the admin (of course).

I've tried using the following command in an elevated command prompt window:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn


and it does say that "the operation was successfully completed" and I restart... However, this is what I see when I go to the DEP tab:




Any ideas? Driving me crazy. It won't let me edit any settings whatsoever for DEP.

Good question, didn't know that it was possible to edit the DEP settings in the BIOS?

Edit: Went into BIOS and did not see anything about DEP. I did, however, turn on anything that sounded like it may be associated with DEP (Advanced virtual security or something along those lines) but to no avail. The DEP tab was still inactive after reboot.
