make an exception for the game exe in Windows Data Execution Prevention. (DEP)

turn off DEP .


1. CLICK THE START BUTTOM AT THE LOWER LEFT OF THE DESKTOP SCREEN
2. WHERE IT SAYS "SEARCH PROGRAMS AND FILES" BOX TYPE IN THERE ( SYSDM.CPL)
3.THE BOX THAT APPEARS HAS 5 TABS ACROSS THE TOP OF IT. CHOOSE (ADVANCE)
4.THE FIRST ONE LABLED (PERFORMANCE, VISUAL EFFECTS,PROCESSOR SCHEDULING,MEMORY USAGE......... CLICK THE (SETTINGS) BUTTON.
5.THERE WILL BE A LIST, BUT DON'T WORRY ABOUT THAT.....ACROSS THE TOP OF THAT WINDOW BOX ARE 3 MORE TABS. CLICK (DATA EXECUTION PREVENTION)
6.YOUR DEP SHOULD PROBABLY BE TURNED ON ALREADY.

7.Click the Data Execution Prevention tab, and then click Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.


BUT NOW YOU CAN "ADD" A GAMES EXECUTION FILE (THE ONE THAT STARTS THE GAME UP) TO THE LIST SO YOU CAN THUS TURN IT OFF WHEN YOU PLAY JUST THAT GAME. YOUR GAME START FILE WILL ALMOST ALWAYS LOOK SOMETHING LIKE THIS: (RTC3.EXE) FOR RAILROAD TYCOON 3, OR ( PR2.EXE) FOR PORT ROYALE 2. IN YOUR CASE YOU WILL WANT TO ADD BALDUR'S GATE OR BGEE.EXE LOCATED IN THE BALDURS GATE DIRECTORY: C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\STEAM\STEAMAPPS\COMMON\BALDUR'S GATE ENHANCED EDITION\......SCROLL DOWN TO BGEE AND HIGHLIGHT IT AND ADD THE EXECUTABLE TO THE DEP LIST.....DONE.

NOTE: THIS IS IN CAPS INORDER TO SEE IT BETTER WHILE TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR COMPUTER.
