    I am trying to install a game from bigfish games. They said that the game is compatiable. It installs fine but when it activates, a window pops ups saying that drmactivator stopped working. My OS is Vista Ultimate. Please help me.

    DEP: (Data Execution Prevention)
    If you are receiving the DRM activator error message do the following to correct the issue.
    1 - Left click on Start
    2.- Right click on Computer
    3 - Left click on Properties 4 - Left click on Advanced System Settings
    5 - Under Performance click on Settings
    6 - Left click on Data Performance Settings
    7 - Click on TURN ON DEP FOR ESSENTIAL WINDOWS PROGRAMS AND SETTINGS ONLY.
    8 - Click on Apply and then OK.

    UAC: (User Account Control)
    Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it. Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer. This worked after a bunch of angry letters to BigFish
