Deepfreeze alternative: Shadow Defender

I've been using Deep freeze both for personal(testing) and customer used. In the Internet cafe my friend and I manages, currently their using Deep freeze to protect their computers from all sorts of virus / malware / spyware and etc problems. There were few setbacks on Deep freeze but it proves it effectiveness in day to day used. Problems encountered at times were: it's not image cloning friendly. Crashes or prone to cmos resetting problem. [Read More..]

HOW TO's: Remove "FOLDER LOCK" without a password

Well, I'm one of those people out there who accidentally forgot my Folder Lock password b'coz I haven't used the software I installed for quite a month. It's sort of my short memory loss syndrome. I was struggling for 5 days trying to remember that brilliant password I created that was somewhat stuck on whichever part of my miniature size brain.

Just an info: The registration key that was given to a user after registering the program legally could be used to override the password that you had previously set. So instead of wasting your time remembering your forgotten password, you could simply replace it by your registration key.

If all else fails try this one. Meaning, another loss reg key is involved.

Anyway, here's what I did to solve this dilemma.

Just download any full version copy of folder lock with similar version of the one your using, example Folder lock v5.7.5 or something like that. Then just Install it. Then let it run automatically after the installation. You will be prompt to login using a new folder lock user id and folder lock registration key. You can use this

FolderLock User ID: NewSoft15805

FolderLock Registration Key: 221281703

After you have entered the information above, follow the programs procedures until registration is finish. Start folder lock and when the program ask for the password, use the folder Registration Key stated above.

Now that you have successfully entered the program, you can reconfigure it based on your preferences. Now if you want to uninstall the program which I did, click "options" and select uninstall. The system will require you to reboot your computer after it was uninstalled to remove unwanted folder lock backup files.

This worked for me but I can't guarantee if it will work for all versions. just give it a try if you want to, okay.

Dude, I just found my soulmate. I had the exact same problem. I finally got rid of that stupid programme. I thought of a password I couldn't remember!

Great thanks!

Amar said...

You are wonder boss. You saved me. I forgot the password and tried all the passwords that I can remember that I used in my life but was not lucky. To install new operating system you need to uninstall folder lock first or it will not allow to install. I searched the web for two days but there was no answer. I thank you for the post and keep doing the wonderful job.

2)Extract the zip archive.

Hi CSA, this is Fritz, Hope your Folder Lock problems were ok now. Anyway just follow the procedure above by reinstalling your Folder Lock Software Version 6.2.4 and try using this
Serial : F6-20090324-9-deepzero

and
Key: 3C5CC43A969A14A4DE38F4EAEE5C44442AE6347E3EFEF47E86180404FEFEF4EE

you are amazing man you have helped me so much

sunyaatisunyaa said...

None of these solutions worked for me.

Here's my problem:

I downloaded a file and later deleted (Erased) it. However, this left a 0kb .flk file which would not erase. I did not lock this file and it was not locked in any sense when I downloaded it. I have lost my password for the free trial of Folder Lock 6 so I cannot access it with that to delete it properly. I got the full version of Folder Lock, made a new password, but still when I try to open that locked 0kb .flk file it says "wrong password".

I have also tried the registry edit route and this has not helped either - I cannot delete the trial version of Folder Lock or delete those 0kb files WHATSOEVER!!!

What can I do? This program is a nightmare, it won't go away!!!

yvkrishnaa said...

Really you made a great job dude

im very very thankfull to u

thank you very much

Anonymous said...

you can also uninstall this program by a more simple way
i.e. just create a new locker
then it asks for new password
type any new password n then the option page will appear
click on uninstall n your computer will restart
but one problem only this the locker you earlier created will not open

Sorry for Spamming

But it really works............

Very simple

Try this: run registry by typing `regedit' after clicking Start button in Windows and then click Run. Then delete this string value:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > FolderLock6 > LastLockerPath

Then boot to Safe mode , hold F8 Key when start PC

Go to My Documents and search for a file name locker with extension (*FLK) or (*FLKW) and delete.

Reboot PC in normal mode , run the Folder lock program and click trial, then enter new password/confirm new password,MAKE SURE TO REMEMBER, I use 123456 for easy one

Then go to option, and uninstall the program as you wish

THIS WORK FOR ME
