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.
