Re: Computer Freeze

Firsly i would of asked what exactly the repairer did to it to solve the problem, and then ask for a refund as it is no better. But we can try and solve it here, by looking for the cause next time it freezes, go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer, then look at 'application' on the left column and click on it and on the right a list of applications that have been run will list, look for any red 'x' and double click on that line and the problem will show and send yot to microsoft for a possible solution. look also on the 'system' again in the left panel and again look for red x's, but ignore any warning(!) marks. It may also be a graphics driver, so update you graphics driver or even try an older one from the card manufacturer web site. Another common freezing problem can be down to overheating, so take the side of the pc off and check there are no dust building on the fans and that there are no cables obstructing the air flow, leave the side off the pc whilst using and see if it still freezes. Also lastly, usb wireless network cards have been known to be a cause for freezing because of poor drivers, so if you have one try dissabling the software programme that runs your network card and enable WZC, which is Windows Zero Configuration, as this is more stable.

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.

The game freezes when kratos cut the man down which is eaten by a bird. when the man falls in the fire ,the flames goes around kratos and then the game freezes

Computer freezes is usually related to hardware, meaning the video card, random access memory (RAM), or another component may be underperforming. Software can also lead to a frozen computer, as can issues with drivers, the operating system, and malware; A virus or spyware infection on your computer might also be the source of freeze issues.all these things can stop a computer from working properly.
1.If the freeze happens every time a certain hardware device is plugged in or switched on, the device itself might be to blame. Check drivers update for the device, and download and install them to erase any bugs that might exist in your version. Similarly, if the freeze only happens when using one particular application, that program might also be the root cause.
2.Run the System Restore utility from the System Tools section of the Accessories folder on the Start menu to roll back Windows to a previous version of the registry. This will fix prior registry issues without affecting personal files and settings.

3.If your computer still keeps freezing up after you take the solutions above, I suggest you to download a software to deal with it. The choice is sure to be more effective and simple, but there are few free utilities for this issue. Windows Boot Genius is a excellent one if you wanna take this solution.

I have setting deep freeze

I was able to find this information on Wikipedia about the program deep freeze. I'm not 100% sure this is what you are referring to, but here you go.
Deep Freeze, by Faronics, is an application available for the Microsoft Windows,Mac OS X, and SUSE Linux operating systems which allows system administrators to protect the core operating system and configuration files on a workstation or server by restoring a computer back to its original configuration each time the computer restarts.

After downloading a few games online, my computer been freezing up on me. It would freeze up 1 or 2 minute after i turn it on. I even tried to do a System Restore, but that would freeze up also. Even if...

Possibly a compatibility problem with software. Check your task manager for for new or unknown processes, and check your startup processes for such issues. Also scan your machine with an anti-virus and malware scanner.

Hope this helps, careful what you download, and always scan before opening.

Every time I log in my computer freeze

When booting up press F8 and boot in safe mode then run MSCONFIG and make sure your computer turns on running only basic programs. It could be you have a program running that is causing it to freeze as soon as you boot up. If it still freezes in safe mode you might need to repair windows using the original CD.

Yahoo makes my internet run slow and freeze

It is more likely you need to clean up your computer a bit. Try this START->PROGRAMS->ACCESSORIES->SYSTEM TOOLS->DISC CLEANUP select this and a box opens, place a check mark in every box, you need none of this as it is duplication of duplications, and run it. Say yes when it says Are you sure...
Then when that's done (should take a while if you haven't done it for a long time or never)
Follow the same path as to where the disc cleanup is only this time select ->Disk Defragmenter and click on Defragment and let that run. This process should be done weekly and it won't take long at all the next time.
Now no matter what this will help you machine to be faster. The freeze you mentioned does bother me some, I would think the video and/or memory card could come to the center of attention. If so write back and we'll pursue that then.

Hp computer freezes for a few seconds at a time after repowering then is fine then freezes. Only solution so far is restoring to an earlier date. Does anyone have a solution for these intermitent freezes?

go into msconfig or the system configuration utility and then click on the startup tab. This will show you all the programs that are running while windows is loaded. Uncheck the programs that you don't want running and then click on Apply and then click on OK and then let the computer restart. Your computer should run a bit quicker and the freeze ups should pretty much go away.
