    I keep getting the following error message:

    WMI Provider Host stopped working and was closed.

    Then a message about Data Execution Prevention

    Can anyone help me understand and/or correct this error and stop this error message?

    Many thanks,

    Gary

    WMI provides program access to machine data, for example I can ask your machine what processor it has or what software is installed. You may have a task running that is making WMI unhappy.
    Look for tasks/programs that run at the same time as the error occurs, or that fail unexpectedly.

    cheers, Paul
