EMET and the DLP agent running on the same system causes various applications like Excel to crash when the application is opened.

DLP application hooking and EMET mitigations work at a similarly low level within applications
As Microsoft has noted in their guidelines article and elsewhere, because DLP application hooking and EMET mitigations work at a similarly low level within applications, compatibility issues may arise. Application hooking is an essential part of our Endpoint Application Monitoring features. Symantec DLP Engineering has found that the following EMET Return Oriented Programming (ROP) mitigations. "Caller Check" and "Simulate Execution Flow", are the mitigations that need to be disabled on affected applications to resolve the compatibility issues being observed between EMET and DLP.
