My PC was freezing and I change the processor and it worked, if you gonna try to change processor for troubleshooting, be sure to ground yourself by touching the chassi before you touch the components in the PC to avoid static build up. If you think theres nothing to do with your Hardisk's space or operating system affected by virus that is causing the problem, than try this.

My recorded tv freezes when trying to watch them


The whole thing freezes? As in the mouse or keyboard won't even work?

If it's just the video that freezes and you can shut it off, most likely it's a codec issue. Which is dumb since everything you're using came packaged together in the unit. Installing a third party codec pack would solve this issue.

Though, if you're whole PC is freezing when you try to play a video then I have a few other questions to ask you to narrow the potential problems down:

1. Open up the player that opens automatically when you try to watch something, but don't load a video into it. Did everything still freeze?
2. If not, then open a video file that is not something you recorded from TV, like a DVD or a video clip from the net. Did it freeze then?
3. When it freezes, does it freeze instantly? Or does it run for a little bit then freeze. If the latter is the case, what happens in the time between opening the file and the lock down?

How to uninstall deep freeze


To uninstall the software Deep Freeze must first be disabled and then uninstalled.

To disable Deep Freeze:

1. Hold down the shift key and double-click on the Deep Freeze icon. Alternatively, you

can press Crtl-Alt-Shift-F6. You should now see a password dialog.
2. Enter your password and click OK. If you have not yet entered a password you should be

able to click OK without entering anything. You should now see a dialog with boot options.
3. Select "Boot thawed" and click OK. This will disable Deep Freeze on the next reboot.
4. Reboot your machine. After the machine reboots you are ready to uninstall Deep Freeze.

To uninstall:

1. Locate the installation file you used to install Deep Freeze to this machine. By

default the name of this file is called "DF5Std.exe" for versions 5.X and "DF6Std.exe" for

versions 6.X.
2. Run the installation file (DF5Std.exe or DF6Std.exe).
3. Select the option to "Uninstall"
4. The software should uninstall and reboot the machine. When the machine reboots, Deep

Freeze should be uninstalled.

I forgot my deepfreeze and i need to delete it tho it can't be deleted without unfreezing my pc i tried antideepfreeze and it failed for me ....what can i do ?


There's no possible way to recover a lost/forgotten Deep Freeze password. But there are several ways to possibly disable/uninstall DeepFreeze.

Enterprise Version :
Deep Freeze Enterprise users can generate One Time Passwords (OTP) to gain access to deepfreeze. To generate an OTP,
  1. Open the Deep Freeze login dialog on the system for which you need to generate the One Time Password.
  2. Write down the Token code. It is located at the top of the login dialog.
  3. Open the Deep Freeze Configuration Administrator and click the One-Time Passwords tab or open the Enterprise Console and click on Tools > One Time Password.
  4. Enter the code you recorded into the Token field and click Generate OTP. Another code will appear in the OTP field. The second code is the password for the workstation.

The newly generated One-Time Password can then be used to disable, uninstall, and re-install Deep Freeze with the correct password.

For Deep Freeze evaluations (with no License Key entered) :

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Enter the system BIOS settings.
  3. Advance the clock by at least 60 days and then restart your computer. This will disable the software.
  4. After the system has started, run the Deep Freeze installation program to uninstall Deep Freeze.
  5. After the computer reboots, re-enter the BIOS and reset the clock to the current date. You can then re-install Deep Freeze after restarting.
If you are running a licensed copy of Deep Freeze Standard submit a ticket and we can look into the issue further to see if there are any other options avalalbe to assist you.

If your system freezes in the BIOS, then the issue is almost certainly the motherboard, which it sounds like you haven't replaced yet.
Good luck. Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!

Microsoft applications off computer, computer keeps freezing


Not sure what you are asking for.

Computer freezing can be caused by a number of things. Does freezing occur somewhat randomly? Or only when you use a certain application?

My Dell Dimension 2400 running home XP is freezing up. I have a good virus program that is updated and run everyday. It freezes up on line and then closes the site but recovers it following another freeze....


Typically, freezing is caused by Spyware, Malware or memory.

First, install and run Spybot and Malwarebytes. If still a problem, power off your system and remove all the memory modules. Install one at-a-time and boot your system to see which module is problematic. Hope this helps.
