excellent handy software, i personally tried it on my netbook and it worked great!

info - "CMOS De-Animator is a service utility which allows you to invalidate the checksum of your system's CMOS memory, resetting all settings to default and clearing any stored BIOS passwords (if any) upon re-boot. The main advantage of my utility is, that it can work under every Windows operating system, and no administrator privileges are required!

so you don't have to remove batteries or open the case and press a button on mobo or even access your bios to reset it, software based reset ftw.

Clear CMOS under Windows!

CMOS De-Animator is a small utility that allows you to clear the CMOS RAM. 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.

Like with De-Animator 1.0, one-time activated administrator privileges are required, if the application is ran for the first time in your system. CMOS De-Animator v2 now includes a self-test on its startup to check, whether the CMOS can be successfully accessed to.

After successful execution with the status "Ready to go" visible, the application can be normally used even under non-privileged accounts on your machine (i.e. under an user account). This doesn't apply to Windows 98/ME, where the utility works instantly.

Note: Some antivirus and antispyware programs flag CMOS De-Animator as being infected/malware, although the application is perfectly safe and does not pose a threat to your system. This is called a 'false positive'. The term false positive is used when antivirus software wrongly classifies an innocuous ( inoffensive ) file as a virus. The incorrect detection may be due to heuristics or to an incorrect virus signature in a database. [Similar problems can occur with antitrojan or antispyware software.]

NOTE: On some systems it might display "Operation Completed" without actually clearing the CMOS. If this happens, running the "clearing process" with one-time administrator privileges will do the trick, and the next time the utility is used, it works for all users (including standard ones) and system-wide. It's a one-time driver-related issue.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]

· Simple graphical interface with three possible actions: clear, save or restore the CMOS RAM
· Test CMOS reading at the startup, as mentioned above.
· No need to download a separate version for 64-bit systems.
· Compared with De-Animator 1.0 x86, less false-alarm messages from some picky antivirus programs

CMOS De-Animator v2 is a service utility for your system's CMOS RAM. Unlike its predecessor, the CMOS De-Animator 1.0, this new version includes a graphical interface and CMOS-backup options along with the "Clear CMOS" procedure, which was the original version's only purpose. 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 will have to use De-Animator 1.0.

Like with CMOS De-Animator 1.0, one-time activated administrator (power user) privileges are required, if the application is ran for the first time in your system. CMOS De-Animator v2 now includes a self-test on its startup to check, whether the CMOS can be successfully accessed to. After successful execution with the status "Ready to go" visible, the application can be normally used even under non-privileged accounts on your machine (i.e. under an user account). This doesn't apply to Windows 98/ME, where the utility works instantly.

What's new in version 2.1:
- Minor bugfixes.
- Added a warning about usage on laptops and computers with non-standard CMOS.

Improvements in version 2.0 over 1.0:
- A simple GUI with three possible actions: clear, save or restore the CMOS RAM
- Test CMOS reading at the startup, as mentioned above.
- No need to download a separate version for 64-bit systems.
- Compared with De-Animator 1.0 (32-bit), no false-alarm messages from picky antivirus programs

Cool this might remove the password on the BIOS of a computer I recently bought.

Why not just take the CMOS battery out? Works every time.

Cuz this is faster right from your desktop and you dont have to turn off your pc and open your case and dig in to remove the battery...

one click does the job.
