The option description:

The majority of modern processors allow is hardware to forbid execution of programs from the area obviously intended for data storage, instead of a code (so-called DEP in terms Microsoft or NX and XD bit in terms of manufacturers of processors). Thus additional protection of the computer against hacker attacks, viruses, etc. threats is provided. If your processor supports this technology, include ([Enabled]) this option. Well and for earlier models of the processors deprived of support of this function, establish value [Disabled].
