UnFreeze is a practical and straightforward software program that proposes a very simple method for terminating active windows and shutting down the computer: through keyboard shortcuts. It comes in handy for scenarios where currently running applications freeze and need to be quickly terminated.
Quick setup and systray accessibility
Installing this utility is a fast and easy job that shouldn't give you any trouble. Once launched, UnFreeze creates an icon in the taskbar notifications area and sits there silently without interrupting your regular PC activity.
Opening its right-click menu gives you the possibility to restore the main configuration panel, power off the machine, and exit UnFreeze.
Set hotkeys for window termination and PC shutdown
The primary panel contains two default key combinations for killing the active window and shutting down the PC, respectively. You can leave them as they are, turn them into anything else, as well as restore settings to default if you change your mind afterward. Apart from the fact that the app can be sent to the system tray with the click of a button, there are no other noteworthy options available here.
Evaluation and conclusion
We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that the program didn't hang, crash or show error dialogs. As we expected, it had minimal impact on the overall performance of the machine, running on low CPU and RAM.
On the other hand, it comes loaded with a basic set of features that doesn't justify the price of the registered package. We must also keep in mind that it hasn't been updated for a pretty long time. Otherwise, UnFreeze gets the job done, providing users of any experience level with an effective method for terminating hung windows and powering off the machine via hotkeys.
