You should have received a set of restore cd's with your notebook. You can use them to restore the machine to it's factory state. Be careful, because by doing this you'll completely erase all your files and settings. Do a backup to an external hard drive before you restore your computer.

Acer Aspire One Netbook has trojan hose viruses.

First of all, how do u know it has a trojan? Which antivirus are u using? Do u know whats the name of the trojan?
Most trojans can be removed easily with any antivirus, some are worst but our AV friends work hard on it and develop utilities to remove them, I dont think u need to reinstall windows xp, but in the case u would, u do need the cd to do it.

I just bought an Acer Aspire One Netbook. Maybe I'm just crazy but everything comes up but when I open a new window, for ex: and I try to enter my information to sign in, I am unable to type the...

  1. Apple laptops are beautiful, but I can't imagine the average user who spends all their time in the web browser paying 3 to 4 times the price of a netbook for a Mac laptop. Macs are brilliantly designed, it's true, but that's a hell of a tax to run Safari.

  2. Speaking of taxes, what about the Microsoft Tax? I'm already heavily infatuated with the current iteration of netbooks as represented by the Aspire. And they can only get better and cheaper over time. Imagine a machine with the same specs as the Aspire One but at $299, $199, maybe even $99. It's going to happen. It's inevitable. This is a huge opening for Linux; it's the ideal way to deliver a complete, modern web browser at nearly zero marginal cost to both the vendor and consumer.

  3. The booming growth of netbooks will keep Windows XP alive much longer than expected. As much as I like Vista as a solid (if not stellar) upgrade from XP, the prehistoric 2001 era system requirements for XP still make it a better choice for these kinds of devices. 1 GB of memory is roomy; a measly 16 GB of disk space plenty. Can't say that for Vista. No sir. It's also an opportunity for Microsoft to play games with the Linux market by reducing the price of XP to crazy low, fire sale, everything-must-go levels. But only for "select" and "preferred" OEM vendors, of course, not for the common folks on the street.
I won't lie. One of the attractions of this particular model is that it runs Windows XP, an operating system I, and every other software vendor on the planet, know by heart. It'll run whatever without me having to think too much about it. But I could easily see myself leaving some of that potential flexibility on the table if the price dropped to $199 or so. If it runs Firefox 3, or Chrome, or Opera, that's about all I need.

Acer aspire one under virus attack

Your best bet is to do the following;
1 download either SuperAntiSpyware or MalWareBytes update via the internet and scan the disk (these are excellent and both Free)

2 Remove any Malwere they recommend

3 If the message still comes up download and run Trojan Remover - this will remove it.

Then make sure you are protected in future by installing an anti-virus system like (if you dont want to pay) Avira or Avast or if you do Kaspersky or Bitdefender

Here are your links

SuperANti SPyware

Your laptop may be infected by a virus or trojan.
I suggest you take the laptop to a qualified technician who will do the following:
1: Remove the hard disk
2: Attach the hard disk to another computer system as a SLAVE DRIVE
3: Scan the laptop hard drive for trojans,malware/viruses.
4: After scanning and cleaning, re-install the hard disk in the laptop.
That should get you going again! Please install an antivirus program afterwards to avoid the same happening again.

Download and run Belarc Advisor here which will list your laptop's info including serial numbers, then download and run AVG Free 8.0 here and this should find and remove any trojan. It also will automatically scan your pc and update itself every day.
