Backup, Reset and Restore BIOS Settings

Few months back we have mentioned here about CMOS De-Animator – a simple program that helps us to reset BIOS (clear CMOS memory) to its default state with a click of a button. Now its new version is available with few more options. The new version (v.2.0) has a graphical interface and lets you backup and restore CMOS settings.

So, you can now backup the main CMOS settings to a file, or restore them later. The application supports all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating systems.

So, if you want to reset BIOS for any reason, CMOS De-Animator is a handy application. You can download it free at source.
