CMOS De-Animator Reset and Remove BIOS Password Settings for Laptop

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! The utility has no GUI – only a confirmation message to begin or exit, error handling messages and a success dialog box upon successful operation. The utility is very portable, no installation required.

CMOS De-Animator 3 comes in both 32bit & 64bit versions and runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8

    Tried the battery method on my Asus laptop and it worked. I too had forgotten my master password and was at my wits end, until I came across this site and tried the removal of the battery from the motherboard suggestion. I am totally relieved even though I’ve had too reboot the whole system, my complete backup on my external HD has also saved me grief. Awesome top and one releived owner .
    Cheers guys

    I do own NTB Siemens Nixdorf PCD-4ND with Phoenix BIOS 1.3 which is password protected. I want to use CMOS De-Animator V1. I have several questions: the “Clear” to clear CMOS and after reboot everything will be in default? Where to store the CMOS settings by selecting “save”? Selecting the “restore” is intended to restore the original state or a recovery password? Thank you in advance for your answers. Martin Baroch
