CMOS De-Animator is a service utility for your system’s CMOS RAM. Unlike its predecessor, the CMOS De-Animator 2.0, the new version includes a graphical interface and CMOS-backup options along with the “Clear CMOS” procedure, which was the original version’s only purpose. So, you can now backup the main CMOS settings to a file, or restore them later. The application supports all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating systems except Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.51; for these old systems, you have to use De-Animator’s previous version.
One-time activated administrator privileges are required if the application is run for the first time in your system. CMOS De-Animator includes a self-test on its startup to check, whether the CMOS can be successfully accessed. After successful execution with the status “Ready to go” visible, the application can normally be used even under non-privileged accounts on your machine (i.e., under a user account). This doesn’t apply to Windows 98/ME, where the utility works instantly.
You will get some false-alarm messages from some picky antivirus programs.
Version History for CMOS De-Animator:
This release includes a bootable media wizard to create a bootable version of CMOS De-Animator without formatting the destination drive.
It can also de-password certain Acer laptops, which is not possible in the Windows version!
Your owners manual also has instructions on resetting your CMOS by simply moving a jumper from 1 pin to 2, then back again.
