I go to my computer and when trying to open the hard disk shows an
error report and does no let open it. A window is shown
Data execution prevention
To protect your computer windows has closed this progran .
Data execution prevention helps protect against damage by virus and other
sec threats.

What can I correct the problem?

Most hard drives require a #6 or #8 Torx driver to open the hard drive. ;-)

He'll probably need to use a #2 Philips to open the case first. ;)

1) Turn on XP's Firewall if you have no other firewall installed. If you
haven't updated to XP SP1 or later, do so as soon as possible.
2) Update your antivirus product if you have one. If you don't, install one
(a good one)
3) Do a full system scan. If you find any viruses, clean them off the HD.
4) Update your anti-spyware utility. If you have none, install one, like
Ad-Aware or Spybot S&D.
5) Run the anti-spyware utility. Fix all problems it finds.

You might want to take a look at these articles:

It looks as if you have to edit your boot.ini file:
Go to Start -> Control Panel and open the System applet.
In System Properties click on the Advanced tab.
In the Startup and Recovery section click on the Settings button.
In the System Startup section click on the Edit button.
This will open your Boot.ini file in Notepad.
First, you need to create a backup of this file.
On the toolbar click on File -> Save as.
Name this backup file Boot.old and save it on your C drive.
Now you can edit the current file.
Find the line that looks like one of these:
"Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
"Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition" /fastdetect
/NoExecute=OptIn
Change OptIn to AlwaysOff.
It should now read /NoExecute=AlwaysOff
Go to the toolbar and selct File -> Save.
Close Notepad.
Restart your computer and see if the problem is fixed.
If everything is working OK, you can delete the Boot.old file.

*** NOTE that the OP says he can't access his HD. How is he going to go
into Control Panel and fix it? For that matter, how can he follow my advice
if he can't access the HD?.

I interpreted his question to mean that from within My Computer
if he tried to open a drive, such as C, he received the Data
Execution Prevention error message. It's possible that other
processes or applications might not be affected. Hopefully,
Control Panel applets will still be accessible. I thought it
would be easier for him to edit the Boot.ini file from within
System Properties than to go through the process of editing the
file directly. That would mean having to outline the process of
displaying hidden system files and then removing the read only
attribute from Boot.ini. The MS article I cited gives a method of
disabling DEP from the command line but even that might prove
problematic for the average user.

If as you suspect this behavior is virus related, it's possible
that he may be able to follow your suggestions. His ability to
post a question to the newsgroup indicates that he still has
internet access. He could then download the updates and
antispyware utilities you mentioned. Whether they run or not is
another question.

Yes, I think the English got a bit garbled:
"I go to my computer and when trying to open the hard disk"
translates to:
In "My Computer," when I try to expand the C drive...


My computer does not open
