Problems with Symantec AV Detecting Deep Freeze
Posted by Adam Zilliax on 17 September 2014 12:23 AM

We have had a number of reports this morning that Symantec's family of AV software is flagging some of the components of Deep Freeze as being infected. This currently is being investigated and we have submitted clean copies of these files to Symantec for review. If you are able we reccomend pausing your Symantec updates until such time as a updated version of the defintions that does not flag our products is supplied.

While this won't be an issue if the system is frozen, if the files are quarintened while the computer is thawed this can cause a number of issues - if you are running into issues with the maintnance windows not ending or machines getting "stuck" while thawed please reach out to the support team at 800-943-6422 x1 and we will see what we can do to assist you with this issue.

OSX Yosemite Public Beta & Deep Freeze Support
Posted by Adam Zilliax on 26 July 2014 12:21 AM

As many of our customers are aware Apple has recently released a beta version of OS X Yosemite for public download and trial.

At this time the currently released versions of Deep Freeze do not yet support installation on OS X Yosemite and will block themselves from being installed to avoid issues on the system.

If you have Deep Freeze installed and then you subsequently upgrade to Yosemite with Deep Freeze is installed the Deep Freeze product will not properly function as it appears that the current beta of the demo converts the disks on the system into a Core Storage volume during the installation process. This results in Deep Freeze being unable to read its configuration file and will result in the Deep Freeze icon being replaced by a question mark in the menu bar.

Once we have a version of Deep Freeze that can support installation on OS X Yosemite notification will be posted on the support portal.
