So, You’re stuck in a loop?
If you using the evalution edition – it’s no problem! just change your date 30 days to the future and deep freeze will stop working.
If you using the full edition you need a different solution:
To remove frozen mode without access to your windows, you must use a recovery OS.
You can use either Any Linux LiveCD, HBCD, Windows Recovery CD, PXE Solution or whatever to load any NTFS/FAT Supported OS.
First you need another way to start your computer.
It can be your Windows Recovery CD, Any Live Boot CD/PXE or any environment which you can copy files in your local system. I will recommend UBUNTU/HBCD but Choose whatever suits you:
3. or Use the recovery console on your Windows CD (not recommended – using command line)
Load your system from recovery CD or LINUX or any Live environment. the file which controls the DF (Deep Freeze) State located on C:\. if you have version 5, or version 6.
DF 5 : Replace file : Persi 0.sys
DF 6 : Replace file : $Persi0.sys
you need to repalce the file in drive C with the same file.
Just browse using any file-explorer to drive c:\, copy the file to other location, and then – copy it back to the same place.
if you need help to copy the file itself from command:
mkdir c:\temp copy c:/Persi o.sys c:/temp copy c:/temp/Persi o.sys c:/
You are in thawed mode!
