AntiFreeze is an emergency task manager that is intended for situations in which your system has become unreponsive and the
standard Windows Task Manager cannot help you out.
To access the AntiFreeze task manager, press the hotkey that's registered for it. The default key combination for this is ALT+CTRL+HOME.
Then the AntiFreeze emergency task manager will popup which allows you to see what processes have been consuming most of your
CPU time and memory.
If your computer has become unreponsive it's likely that you can solve the problem by killing off the program that has
been consuming most CPU time.
When will it work ?
If your computer is hanging or becomes unresponsive because
One or more programs are doing very intensive tasks, they consume so much processor cycles that the system becomes unresponsive
One or more programs consume so much memory that the paging file is heavily used, overloading the system
Programs are running with a scheduling priority which is so high that they consume all processor resources
Too many programs are running at the same time and they all have to compete for attention from the processor
then AntiFreeze is likely to help you get your system to respond again.
If your computer is hanging or becomes unresponsive because of a
hardware problem or the mouse cursor is not updated when you move it or
some piece of kernel software or device driver is stuck at an elevated
priority level then AntiFreeze is not likely to offer you a solution. In
that case you may need to press the reset button and reboot to get your
computer going again.
There are several options that allow you to configure the behavior of AntiFreeze in the Options panel.
