Do you have SP3 installed? I suspect so as DEP was a part of that servicepack. You can't switch it off as such, but you can set it so that it only monitors windows itself and not all programs.

Click on it and then click on the radio button for 'turn on DEP for essential windows programs and services only.' Click on ok in both open dialouge boxes. This will hopefully resolve your problem.
