Well every time I open Windows explorer to access my files from a folder that contains zip files I get an error message saying windows explorer has preformed an error and must close, it's a DEP error but the only program running is Windows Explorer I'm not trying to run any other program I am just trying to look at my zip files to see what I have downloaded even if I don't attempt to open them this happens every time. I disabled DEP and windows explorer still says the same thing it must close, and if Windows explorer is accessing memory that it's not suppose to it is part of windows then what is wrong with my computer. I have no idea and Microsoft isn't going fix it so I need some help..

I think it's not about DEP. Maybe some trojan has infected your computer.
Try to scan you computer with anti-virus softwares.

I doubt it's a virus or trojan I have avast pro nothing gets through it and I haven't installed anything in a long time and nothing questionable or unsafe. It is windows explorer that is causing the problem not something I downloaded or installed. I think it could be a Fat32 limitation that is causing the problem because I have windows installed on a fat32 drive and not ntfs and some the zip files in the folder have really long file names but that doesn't explain why windows explorer persist on having to close it's self every time I open the folder. the zip files also do not contain any executable files they have game images for emulation or for playing in an emulator and they do not contain viruses of any kind.
