      Some months ago I changed the default Data Execution Prevention setting.
      (Computer > (Rt Click) Properties) OR (Control Panel > System) …
      … > Advanced system settings > Advanced:Performance:Settings > Data Execution Prevention.

      The default is “Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs … only”
      I changed it to “Turn on DEP for all programs … except those I select:”
      – and left the selection box empty.

      I encountered no errors, and forgot about the change.

      Recently I had a mysterious problem. When using Lotus 1-2-3, if I did a Ctrl+X (Edit Cut) on a cell, the program crashed. Ctrl+C (Edit Copy) was fine. No other Lotus Smart Suite application had this problem. And another computer also had no problem. The user Account Type (Administrative or Standard) was immaterial.

      The Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Application – Error entry showed
      Faulting application name: 123w.exe
      Faulting module name:main123w.DLL
      Exception code: 0xc0000005

      After chasing around quite a bit, I stumbled to the fact that the ‘c…5’ error may be due to a disallowed memory access.

      — Recollection Flash!

      Result: To the ‘exception box’ I added 123w.exe [which now shows as ‘IBM Lotus 1-2-3’].
      This Lotus blossom now blooms again nicely.
