    I've copied and pasted this for ease:

    Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 now include support for Structured Exception Handling Overwrite Protection (SEHOP). This feature is designed to block exploits that use the Structured Exception Handler (SEH) overwrite technique. This protection mechanism is provided at run-time. Therefore, it helps protect applications regardless of whether or not they have been compiled with the latest improvements, such as /SAFESEH. We recommend that Windows Vista users enable this feature to help increase the security profile of their systems.
