Deep Freeze

A friend of mine got a laptop at a flea market. As he used it more he told me he couldn't store files or install programs. I took a look and found the laptop had deep freeze installed(6.6 i believe). As far as I know there isn't any backdoor password. I've searched the net for reg keys and values to alter, but as soon as I reboot, Its back again. I really don't want to restore windows, this is a notebook and doesn't have a cd rom so id have to play around with that. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Deep Freeze

By saying flea market I bet you mean your friend bought a used laptop, correct?

If that is the case then I really recommend you burn windoze in a cd/dvd and format the whole thing. Things like these should not be trusted, you never know what the previous owner has installed to it. Not wanna be too suspicious, but the previous owner could have installed something fishy into it.

Re: Deep Freeze

I've got a similar scenario I bought a Fujitsu Life-book at a flea market for as little as 5.00 bucks, made for Windows 98 "w00t"

But upon closer inspection I too possess no CD-Rom, but the best way I've found around that, is simply an external CD-DVD-R/RW that you can boot-up from the USB.

Seeing as how most Copies of Windows after 98SE ie: XP or Windows 7 would probably cripple such an ancient piece of technology due to their heavy demands on resources like RAM..

Then your better off installing something lite like Puppy Linux:
