Problem Event Name: BEX, error message

I am getting an annoying error message that tells me:  wuauclt.exe has stopped working and Data Execution Prevention has closed the program to protect my computer. I checked for solutions by going to system properties and turn on DEP for all prgrams and services except those I select, which was wuauclt.exe.  Windows  prevented me from making that change. 

How to I stop this annoying window from constantly appearing?
