I have a stunning new computer that is fast, quiet and hard working. The only thing my computer needs is an operating system.
Oh, and some software.
You see, every time I copy and paste into Microsoft Word (my OS is Vista) it crashes and gives me a DEP message. DEP is Data Execution Protection, execution is right, it kills my work.
I follow the advice (given by Microsoft while using their operating system and their software) and manually whitelist Word so DEP won’t make it crash.
I call HP, it’s got to be a computer problem. HP checks the Microsoft fourms, it is a known problem with no workaround.
In order to use Word, I must first copy onto notepad?
Here’s the link to Open Office. It’s free, and it hasn’t crashed yet.
In the interim a typewriter would be handier than a computer loaded up with Microsoft.
