Try the recovery using ALT+F10 at bootup. Depending on the configuration, you may have an Acer recovery partition that is hidden. That will allow you to recovery your system without the need for CD's.

Hope this helps - remember to rate!

Tip

Do you have Norton Anti-Virus on your PC.


8 out of 10 computers have Norton Anti-Virus installed on their PC. Or you getting message to tell you to update your subscription? If so read on.

Have you notice that your PC is slowing down, or you getting blue screens, is your PC slow to boot, those your PC shutdown really slow. Are you getting pop-ups stating that your PC is infected. These are all symptoms of an out of date Norton Ant-Virus subscription. Even if you have have a current Norton Anti-Virus subscription you may still be infected.

OK, so here is how to fix your PC. First if you do not want to use Norton Anti-Virus anymore you need to remove it. You need to remove it from the control panel add/remove programs. You also need to get the Norton removal tool from Symantec, which makes Norton Anti-Virus. Watch my video from more details. Click here

So now your PC should be running better than before. Remember once Norton Anti-Virus is removed you need to scan it for viruses and then protect it. I recommend and personal use Avast, it is Free for home users and it simply works. Avast does not slow down your computer and it updates everyday with a visual and audio indicators. What more could you ask for. I use Malwarebyte's Anti-Mal ware on-line protection in conjunction with Avast for total protection. You can get that here. Try the free version first and it will get all those infections that Norton Anti-Virus failed to protect. Then upgrade to the Pro version if you need it. Here is the site http://www.malwarebytes.org/.

So now your PC is virus free and protected. What else can you do. I would get Ccleaner from www.ccleaner.com, this is also a free utility that I use. It removes all those temp files and other junk that is slowing down your PC. I do not recommend any registry programs. If you have any those on your PC. You need to remove them, they do not work.

The last thing you need to get is to de-frag your hard drive. I use this one. It is also Free so get it. Click here.

So now you are done and your PC should be a lot faster and better. However if you are still having issues you need to reload your whole operating system. Most people do not have the original CD so you will have to get a professional to do this. If you need help with that you can visit my site at www.adjustservices.com.

I hope this tip was helpful.

Trying to load Avast anti- virus & get an error message can't "configure set-up"


The most current version of Avast is 5.0 and you can download the free version by Clicking Here. If you decide to go with the newer version I would recommend making sure that the 4.6 is removed.If you have issues removing 4.6 use the cleaning tool, you can find the removal tool by Clicking Here
Do you receive this error after you install Avast or after when you try and launch?
Do you have Microsoft Anti-Spyware installed?
Try running the install during a cleanboot:
Make sure that you have removed any setup files from the previous failed install, using the removal tool posted above if needed. Start the System Configuration Utility
  1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.
  2. The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed
  3. Select the Start Up tab
  4. Make note of any programs you may have already turned off, once you have done that select disable all
  5. Now Select the Services tab
  6. Make sure you check off Hide All Microsoft Services before making any changes
  7. Take note of any services you have turned off and then select disable all
  8. Click Apply and then OK
  9. Reboot the system and try installing 4.6 again

Data saved disappears when computer is rebooted


HARDLY SCAN YOUR PC FOR ANY VIRUSES. I RECOMEND AVIRA ANTIVIRUS OR AVAST. THEY WILL IDENTIFY IF THERE IS ANY VIRUS THAT STEALS OR EAT YOUR DATA.

PERHAPS, RUN DISC/HARD DRIVE FRAGMENTATION AND DISK CHECK UP TO SEE IT IS WORKING PROPERLY BECAUSE IT DOES SEEM TO HAVE SAVED YOUR DOCUMENTS ONLY TO FIND IT HAS SOME ERRORS ON IT.

SIMPLY RIGHT CLICK YOUR LOCAL DISC ON MY COMPUTER AND FRAGMENT AND RUN DISC CHECK UTILITY.

I cannot boot my vgc-rc310g after removing trogan horse (2ea)


Your laptop still has a virus. From your description, you seem computer savy. What u need to do is you need to boot your system with UBCD ( can be downloaded at www.UBCD4win.com) and search for files with the extension as .exe and delete the ones that look like folders.

then you reboot and try and log into your system. Next, download a software called Combofix. You google it out and get a download. run that to remove the remaining viruses and fix your regsitry.

Blue Screen


Use the following steps to replace the missing files when Windows cannot start.

  1. Turn the computer on and place the first recovery disc into the top drive.
  2. After inserting the disc, turn the computer off, wait about ten seconds, and turn the computer on again.
  3. If an HP Recovery screen displays "Press any key to continue...", press the spacebar.
  4. To continue, read the warning screen and click OK.
  5. Click Advanced Options at the top of the screen.
  6. Click Selective Recovery.
  7. Read the Select Files to Restore window that appears.
  8. Type the name of the file. For example, if the error message is MNYUTIL.DLL is linked to missing export MFC42.DLL, type MFC*.DLL.
  9. Click OK. If there is more than one recovery disc, it may be necessary to insert another disc when prompted.
  10. When therecovery process has finished copying files, remove the disc andrestart the computer. If problems, persist it may be necessary toperform a system restore or a non-destructive recovery.

You don't need to format your computer lesaharmstro. All you have to do is uninstall the current copy of your anti virus, and install a fresh new copy of avast 4 home edition.

To download the Avast 4 home edition for free, click on the follwing hyperlink:

http://avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

Scan and delete all viruses.

Then download a registry cleaner. It'll fix all bugs in your computer, such as system errors, etc. As well as remove spyware.

Download the reg cleaner by clicking on the following link:


http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html


Run the program, select the necessary boxes, and click repair.


Hope this helps
