No-Execute Protection

Use this option to enable or disable protection against malicious code and viruses on your system. When enabled, memory is marked as non-executable unless the location contains executable code. If viruses attempt to insert and execute code from non-executable memory locations, these viruses are intercepted and an exception is generated.


Enable this option if you are using a Virtual Machine Manager, such as VMware ESX/ESXi and Windows Hyper-V.
