Can anyone explain why Windows will not allow me to view the contents of a RAM location outside of my program space?

I could understand if I was writing to that location (location 5 in RAM) since I would be corrupting data. But what is wrong with just having a peek at what's there?

    Security.

    "Having a peek" at some memory ranges that belong to another program could be passwords or other sensitive info that the peeking program shouldn't be seeing.
