    It would also be good to know how you are accessing the Internet...dialup, DSL, or broadband

    Is it just that site or all web sites? Is the computer slow doing other tasks?

Theres a few things you can do to make your internet faster. First, you should know what type of internet you have. Dialup is going to be slow regardless. Also what browser are you using? Some would suggest that FireFox is much faster than a program like IE. Either way if your internet was previously faster try clearing your browsers cache. In ie click tools--> internet options -->delete --> delete all. In firefox click tools --> clear private data -->clear private data now. that should speed you up quite a bit.

How to uninstall deepfreeze if forgotten password?


What we are going to do is to load a new instance of Deep Freeze login program and we'll change it in such a way that it will accept any password as a valid one.

Let the Play Begin

The first thing to do is to find some data that we are going to use later to load our login program instance. For this, load the Process Explorer. Once it is loaded, we can see a list of all the processes our system is running, among them is the login program called FrzState.exe or FrzState2k.exe. You may expand the tree if required to find this program. Right click over the program's name and select "Properties". A new window will be opened with the process properties.

01a.jpg

Under the Image tab, note the property named "Command Line". Note down the value of "Command Line" including the three numbers at the end of the property for future use in this tutorial.

02a.jpg

Run Ollydbg.

Quote Note: Make sure that OllyScript is properly installed. Make sure that the menu "Plugins" and submenu "OllyScript" is available. If this menu doesn't appear in the program, that means the plugin is not installed properly. To install it, go to the menu "Options" and select "Appearance". In the "Plugin path" box write the address where you copied OllyScript files, press OK and restart the program.

On the 'File' menu select 'Open' and look for the login program file (remember that Process Explorer told you where it was). In the 'Arguments' box write the three numbers you've written down. Click 'Open'. If a warning message box shows up press 'OK'. If a message box is encountered with the content "Do you want to continue the code analysis?" - press 'No'.

03a.jpg

We have successfully loaded the program. However the problem we face here is that it is protected with Aspack 2.12 due to which we cannot see the real code. To solve this, we are going to use OllyScript and the ASPack 2.12 OEP finder script. Go to the "Plugins' menu, and then to the "OllyScript" submenu and select "Run Script".

04a.jpg

Look for the script and open it. The script will find the OEP (original entry point). If any window shows up dismiss it.

Quote Note: We are now on the OEP. If you are an experienced user you can dump the program using OllyDump to analyze the code with a disassembler.
05a.jpg

Right click over the code and a context menu will appear, select 'Go to' and then 'Expression' (or use the shortcut Ctrl+G).

06a.jpg

In the text box enter the following value according to the Deep Freeze version you have installed and press OK.

VERSION/VALUE
4.20.020.0598 / 40368D
4.20.120.0598 / 40368D
4.20.121.0613 / 4034F5
5.20.220.1125 / 4037E9
5.30.120.1181 / 4037E9

07a.jpg

The program will jump to the line of code.

This is the line from where the password verification procedure is called. Let's set a breakpoint here. To do that right click over the line and in the context menu select 'Breakpoint' and then 'Toggle' (or press F2).

08a.jpg

We are almost done! Now let's run this new Deep Freeze login program instance. To do that press F9. If everything went right now you should see two Deep Freeze icons on the system tray next to the clock. If Deep Freeze was configured to hide it , instead of two icons you'll see an empty icon.

Quote Note: If the icon doesn't show up is possible that you haven't written the argument three numbers correctly or that you haven't opened the right file.
09a.jpg 10a.jpg

Now activate the login program by double clicking over the icon while you keep the shift key pressed. If there are two icons, is important that you click over the new icon and not over the old one. The login window will appear asking for the password. Write anything in the password box and press ENTER. The breakpoing we set earlier in Ollydbg will activate and the login program will freeze.

Quote Note: If the breakpoint doesn't activate is possible that you've chosen the wrong icon. Try with the other one.

11a.jpg

On Ollydbg press F8 to step over the function call. On the registers window (to the right of the code) you'll see that EAX register has the value 00000000. That means the password is incorrect, let's change that. Double click over the value of EAX to open the modification window. In the 'Hexadecimal' text box write 1 and press OK.

12a.jpg

13a.jpg

Now press F9 to continue. If everything went right the Deep Freeze configuration dialog will show up.

My computer is too slow - how do I make it faster?


Slow Start Up
There can be a variety of reasons to Windows loading slow during start up. Go to Run, type msconfig and hit enter. Under the 'Start Up' tab, uncheck the unwanted programs and press OK. Things should be a bit fine the next time Windows boots.
Another program worth mentioning here is StartUp Delayer which will help in setting after how much time programs should be loaded after Windows boots. For instance, you could set your instant messenger program to load 50 seconds after Windows starts up.
Slow Loading Start Menu
If the Start Menu items are loading slowly, you can open the Registry Editor by typing in the Run menu 'regedit.exe' and pressing Enter. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop. Look for MenuShowDelay, and double click to edit the value. The lower the number specified, the faster the Start Menu will load.
Slow Right Click Context Menu
Probably the Windows Right Click menu on your computer is loading slow because too many programs added unwanted entries there. Just download this program called Mmm, install it and then modify your context menu to remove unwanted items to speed it up.
win-fixes-send-to.jpg Slow Send To Menu
If the Send To menu loads slowly, you can type 'sendto' in the Run Dialog, and remove unwanted items in the Explorer Window that appears. This should add some speed to it.


Slow Defragmentation
The Windows Defragmenter can't get any slower. You need to have an alternative to the Windows Defragmenter, and Defraggler is just one of the best ones available in the market. It's free, and works like a charm and can speed up defragmentation manifold. For some alternatives, see Five Free Programs to Defragment your PC.

    The appearance of my icons changed, they now have a small blue square with two right arrow symbyls in the square.


    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    • Windows XP
      Change Default Icons in Windows XP
    1. Step 1 Start Windows in your normal fashion.
    2. Step 2 Click the Start menu and select the "My Computer" option. Alternately, you can double-click the "My Computer" desktop icon if you've enabled it to appear on the desktop.
    3. Step 3 Double-click on your hard drive to open the directory.
    4. Step 4 Find the program for which you wish to change the associated icon. You'll need to know its location on the hard drive. If you don't know where it is, you can use the Start menu "Search" feature to locate it.
    5. Step 5 Right-click on the file, and click the "Properties" menu option. This will open the Properties menu for the file.
    6. Step 6 Click the "Change Icon" button. If there is no "Change Icon" button, you will need to create a desktop icon instead. To do so, cancel out of the Properties menu and right-click the file again. This time, select "Send to -> Desktop (create shortcut)."
    7. Step 7 Click on one of the icons that appears in the list. If the icon you want isn't on the list, click the "Browse" button to search for more icons.
    8. Step 8 Click "OK" once you've chosen the icon you'd like to use.
    9. Step 9 Click "Apply" to confirm your changes, and then click "OK" to close the window.
    10. Step 10 Wait a moment to see the icon change. There are times, like when a lot of system resources are in use, when icon changes can take a moment to appear.

    In the past week it has suddenly been taking 5 to 7 seconds for images to load when I view an item on ebay. Other websights pretty much load immediately. Is this an ''ebay'' problem, or is there something...


    It's a server issue with Ebay. Depending on time of day, Ebay has more traffic than most websites than most and thereby has slower server speeds than others. Another issue is Ebay images are uploaded by users who may not understand how to compress images to make them load faster. A thumbnail that's 50k will load much faster than a thumbnail that's 250k. Hope this explains your issue. Thank you for using Fixya!

    It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



    If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
    I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

    Remove icons from the Startup folder
    Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
    NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
    1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
    2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
    3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
    4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
    5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
    6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
    7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
    8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
    If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
