Immediately close frozen windows with one hot key combination using this helpful utility. UNFreeze's tiny dialog interface merely requires users to accept or change two hot key combinations. A Help manual isn't required for this simple, intuitive tool.

Operating UnFreeze is as easy as installing it. Pressing the Terminate Window hot key closes every open Window process. Programs minimized to the start tray are unaffected. The application includes a second hot key to immediately shut down your computer. The program rests in the Tray, and users can choose the program's pop-up menu to Restore the Hot key selection interface, Shutdown the Computer or exit the application.

Every user experiences the occasional frozen window. This tool quickly thaws and eliminates the problem. UnFreeze operates with precious little system overhead. We found it reliable, responsive, easy-to-operate, and easy to recommend.
