Often found in schools, libraries and other public buildings, Faronics Deep Freeze software protects computers against unwanted configuration changes. When in "frozen" mode, the program reverses any system changes on computer restart to prevent accidental or malicious damage. Always disable Deep Freeze 6 before installing new programs or updating existing applications..
Press the Shift key and double-click on the Deep Freeze icon in the notification area on the Windows desktop taskbar. Type your password in the dialog box that opens and click OK.
Select the Status tab. Click the Boot Thawed radio button under the Status on Next Boot section.
Set the number of restarts to 1 to disable Deep Freeze after the next computer restart.
Click Apply and Reboot to confirm the settings and disable Deep Freeze after the computer restarts. To confirm the settings without a restart, click the OK button.
Tips & Warnings
- Use the keyboard shortcut **CTRL | SHIFT | ALT | F6** as an alternative Deep Freeze login method.
- Entering the password unsuccessfully more than 10 times results in an automatic restart to protect against brute force attacks.
