Internet Explorer is much stricter about data excecution prevention

A recent change in Internet Explorer often closes IE for “data exexecution prevention” on many websites. The IE message says that it encountered malicious code, but I’m sure that in most cases it wasn’t, and I suspect there will be a fix pretty soon. One problem occurs when trying to open another window in Blogger to load Picasa album pictures. Picasa always works when tried a second or third time (if the user manually saves the post first).

The Microsoft help page for DEP is here.

Perhaps the code in IE is trying to look for problems similar to that encountered by the New York Times recently.
