If you enable this policy setting, Internet Explorer does not turn on Data Execution Prevention on platforms that support the SetProcessDEPPolicy function.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Internet Explorer uses the SetProcessDEPPolicy function to turn on Data Execution Prevention on platforms that support the function.
