Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

Deep Freeze OK, I bought an open box item from Best Buy. Looks like a floor model. runs fine but it wants to display Best Buy ads when it starts. looks like the ads are connected to the windows sidebar. I can get rid of all of that but the problem is that the system is using Deep Freeze which brings it back to a certain configuration when the system starts up. How do I uninstall DeepFreeze? It's not in "uninstall programs"

Hi caywind

I would be restoring the system back to scratch again from the recovery discs supplied with it or if it has one the recovery partition on the HDD. If you dont have either, then post back to me here.

regards

Disabling Startup Programs in Windows For some programs, it's smart to have them start with Windows, such as anti-virus and firewall software. However, for most programs, starting them at boot-up just wastes resources and extends startup time. There is a tool installed with Windows, called MSConfig, that allows you to quickly and easily see what's running at startup and disable the programs you prefer to run on our own after startup as needed. This tool is available and can be used to disable startup programs in Windows 7, Vista, and XP.
NOTE: MSConfig can be used to configure several things other than just startup programs, so be careful what you do with it. If you're not sure about using it, just follow the steps in this article and you should be fine.
To run MSConfig, open the Start menu and type "msconfig.exe" (without the quotes) in the Search box. As you type, results display. When you see "msconfig.exe," click on it or press Enter, if it is highlighted.
NOTE: If you are using Windows XP, open the Run dialog box from the Start menu, type "msconfig.exe" in the Open edit box, and click OK.

Click the Startup tab on the System Configuration main window. A list of all the startup programs displays with a check box next to each one. To prevent a program from starting up with Windows, select the check box next to the desired program so there is NO check mark in the box. Click OK once you have made your choices.

A dialog box displays telling you that you may need to restart your computer for the changes to take affect. Click Restart to restart your computer immediately. If are not ready to restart your computer, click Exit without restart.

DeepFreeze is a softwre which help you when you shut down or turn off your computer the virus will not save


Hello,

I have used deep freeze software. It is primarily used when computers are shared, or personally can be used for protection of your computer from virus or other malware.

If you create a file and save it, it will be deleted by deep freeze upon the next reboot, unless you open the program and reboot to the thawed mode first. In thawed mode you can create files or other items that will not be deleted. You can boot thawed up to 10 times, then the next boot will be in freeze mode.

Good Luck

My Toshia a135 Laptop is not displaying the sound icon in the bottom right corner. I have Windows Vista. Can you please tell me how to display it?


Right click on any open area of your bottom taskbar, in the popup box click on "Properties".
On the next box that comes up click on "Customize".

You will then see a list of items that you can have displayed all the time on the right of your taskbar or
you can click on the bottom left box that will "Show All Icons and Notifications", best setup.


Make sure you click "OK", on the bottom right to apply the new settings.

Good Luck

I installed my deep freeze software in my laptop.now i forgot that password. so really i cant store anything in my laptop.


Hi!
Sorry I was unable to provide you exact help on this one as I don't know the deep freeze version you are using but you may want to try these steps, if it doesn't work out, please coordinate with us with the version of the deep freeze.
For Deep Freeze Enterprise:
  1. Open the Deep Freeze login dialog on the workstation for which you need to generate the OTP.
  2. Write down the Token code which 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 available to assist you.
Or if you may want, you can also back up all your files then reformat the computer. Thanks for reading my suggestions.

Hope this helps even a bit.

Why my dell inspiron mini won't shutdown?i've tried to restore the system and reinstall the windows XP, but the problem doesn't solved. I really am need your help. Thanks


Ok here is the real fix from someone who had the exact same issue and now does not.... Disconnect cables ah what is that for advise if you dont know how to solve a problem then dont waste peoples time!!!!!
Type msconfig in the run box from the start menu, go to the tab that says "startup" point your mouse to the box that says BTMeter and click. This should remove the battery switch program from running while the OS is trying to shut down and should resolve your issue with the freeze up during normal shut down process. You do not need this program its just another "checks and measures" program Dell added in Windows already has this program built in and it works fine. Now when the PC starts back up a box will pop up stating you changed your start up applications just put a check in the little option that says "dont show me this again.

When I turn my computer on, I get a runtime error.


Clean Boot with Only MoSearch loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); The Mosearch.exe (Microsoft Office Search Service) and Mosdmn.exe (Microsoft Office 10 Search Filter Daemon) Startup items may be conflicting with some other program (or programs) running in the background. Therefore, clean boot your computer with only MoSearch selected on the Startup menu to determine whether this program is the source of the conflict. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type msconfig.exe, and then click OK.
  3. On the General tab, click Selective startup.
  4. On the Startup tab, click to clear all check boxes except for MoSearch.

    NOTE: In Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), leave the *StateMgr check box selected as well.
  5. Click OK, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
  6. If the error message can be reproduced, repeat the preceding steps. In step 3, also click to clear the Process System.ini file and Process Win.ini file check boxes.
If the error message cannot be reproduced, this indicates that MoSearch is conflicting with some other program or programs running in the background. Follow these steps to locate the conflicting program:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type msconfig.exe, and then click OK.
  3. On the Startup tab, click to select one of the check boxes.
  4. Click OK, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
  5. If the preceding steps reproduce the error message, the last item added to the Startup menu is causing the conflict. If the error message is not reproduced, repeat these steps until all Startup menu check boxes are selected.
  6. If all the Startup menu check boxes are selected and the error message is still not reproduced, start Msconfig again, and then click to select the Process System.ini file and Process Win.ini file check boxes.
If this doesn't fix it, let me know and I'll post another, more advanced repair.

Good luck, and please let me know how you do.
