I have a program that popup under what i am doing and freze it how do i delete it i cant find it control panel

Which program is it ? You can also try CTRL+SHIFT+DEL which will open the task manager for you. You can simply select the Software process and HACK it to DEATH by selecting the program and then click "END PROCESS".
It could be possible that it is configured to load automatically in your system. Download MSCONFIG.exe file which will let you know which programs start up on your system. If you find it, STOP it.

Programes running in background

Press Ctrl, Alt and Del and click on the processes tab, this will show you what processes are running in your computer at the time.
If you want to stop certain processes from starting up with the computer then in the run box type msconfig, this will bring up the system configuration utility, click on the startup tab and you will see what starts up with the computer, in that tab you can disable or enable processes.
Be careful what you are doing as you can mess certain settings up if disable the wrong process.

How to uninstall deep freeze v6?

I believe DF5Serv.exe is running as a service. It also appears that it resists attempts to remove it.

I'm going to give you a couple of ways to remove this.

  1. Boot the computer, pressing [F8] as the initial Windows splash screen appears. From the ensuing menu choose "Safe Mode - command prompt only"
  2. Once booted and logged in, type "sc delete DF5Serv" and press enter.
  3. The command should echo back a number of lines. The one labeled "STATE" should tell you if the remove worked.

  1. If the message above indicates that the service didn't uninstall, type "msconfig" and press enter. (You may need to type "\windows\pchealth\helpctr\binaries\msconfig")
  2. Here you can either click "Diagnostic Startup", or go to the \Services\ Tab and unselect "DF5Serv" from the services list. Click [OK].
  3. Allow msconfig to restart the computer and, once logged in - search for DF5Serv.exe and delete it.
  4. You will need to 'clean up' the mess by undoing the changes in msconfig and manually editting the registry (at your own risk!) to remove any keys referencing DF5Serv.
I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Xp windows explorer delay w/ "open with"

Sounds like you have too many background applications running that intercept right-clicks for their own functionality.
Click Start>Run and type in "msconfig". This runs the configuration utility that shows your startup programs and services. Select the "Diagnostic Startp" option , then click "Apply" and follow the restart instructions. When your system reboots select cancel when asked to restore the settings. Now all those burdensome background running applications that sap your system resources will be eliminated (temporarily) and Windows can run without being dragged down.
Try your issue again. If this time its quick and without the long lags you reported, you'll know that at least one of those startup applications is the culprit. Running msconfig again will allow you to restore the Normal Startup, and the Startup tab will allow you to remove selectively that application that is causing the issue. 
One way to identify which one is the culprit is to restart normally (select the Normal Start option in msconfig and reboot) and once back up, do a ctrl-alt-del to bring up the Task Manager. Click the "Processes" tab and then click the heading "Mem Usage". This will sort running processes by how much memory resources they consume. 
The memory hogs may not be the one giving you the problem, but it's likely that a heavy consumer is sapping the CPU cycles needed to handle your right-click pop-up menu and run-with selection. Make a note of the top heavy memory users (print a screenshot) and use this list to eliminate any that are also on the startup list back in msconfig. 
Don't use the "End Process" button in the Task Manager to simply stop them, as you'll likely stop one that is critical to Windows functionality. Msconfig's Startup list just shows the ones that get started at Windows boot up and can be eliminated without crippling Windows - much safer. 
Use your memory hog list to start eliminating, one at a time, the offending applications from the startup list until the issues is resolved. Its a little tedious, but helps clean up your system in the process. 
Hope this helps.
