To start of the tutorial i have to say, that recently I'm busy playing the role of a network admin, and since the network needed some work, and the computers have deep-freeze on them i had to find a way to bypass it, because nobody knew the password(yeah...what a Nice job i have).
So this tutorial is not meant to be used to hack the system at your school, library or any other place which uses this software to protect the PC's.
So let's start.
Setup the PC so that it boots from the CD, i think i don't have to say how that can be done
Download Admin Pack from Winternals.com, you need a payed email address, they wont send you the link if you provide a free email address like @yahoo.com,@gmail.com and so on.
Burn yourself a copy of ERD Commander 2005, you can use the wizard.
Boot from the CD and wait until ERD starts. Once started use regedit and navigate to:
make a backup copy of that key, and then proceed to deleting everything except the "installpath" key
Once that is done, reboot the computer and start normally, now it will take abit more than usually but once Windows starts you will be happy to see that there is no deep-freeze started, and everything you do will remain there Unfortunately this method can't be used to uninstall Deep-Freeze, but it's good if you want to make a quick change and don't know the password
If you want to restore deep-freeze, boot from the CD and use your backup :)You did make a backup didn't you?
I hope this helps someone, this method can't be found searching with google(trust me i searched allot for a way to bypass the password) so i think it's an asset
