I Cannot Access Control Panel Of Deep Freeze [Help]

By alone.m ·
Hey everyone,

I installed Deep Freeze Standard last week on a laptop, everything went fine but the day after i saw a file called Persi0 and 2 other txt files in my 'C:\' directory I didnt know what they are and deleted 'em (using Unlocker) and then restarted the computer in frozen state.

Now my computer boots frozen on both C & D drive and there is no Persi0 in my C + the Deep freeze tray-icon is gone so i cannot access the control panel to make it Thawed, im really stucked here ... tried to copy the persi0 from another computer which is in thawed mode but that didnt help and when i try to open the login panel from (C:\Program Files\Faronics\Deep Freeze\Install C-0\_$Df\FrzState2k.exe) it says Its "Unable to load Deep Freeze configuration. Login Program will not be available."

I am 90% sure that removing Persi0 caused all these problems and my computer keeps booting frozen and sadly there is nothing i can do.

One more thing you should know is that the laptop's monitor is dead and i am using (Team Viewer) a remote control prog to use that laptop.
it has Windows XP SP3 installed.

is there anyway of opening the login panel ? i have the password and everything... just removed the persi0 and it happend.

Please help.

You removed an necessary Deep Freeze File here

This file is Unique to your system and is built specially for your system when you install the software.

The only solution if you need Data off this drive is to pack it up and send it to a Professional Data Recovery House. If you don't need any Data off the HDD just wipe the Drive with kill Disc available free here


And reload your system from the Recovery Disc.

As the On Board Monitor is broken you can plug in an external Monitor tot he NB and use that to see what you are doing. You however may be required to use a Key Combination to switch screens depending on your Make & Model Note Book.

A little knowledge is a very dangerous thing ...

Just because YOU didn't know what the file was for didn't mean the computer wasn't using it.

A salutory lesson if ever there was one. Mark it up to experience - you won't do that again.

DF Support

Well you are right I shouldn't have done that and never will ... lol

I contacted DF support and they sent me a Deep Freeze Killing file so all i need now is an external monitor to run this file and get over this.

5- now go to my computer and click on it, select the c: driver then click on program files
