    I'm not sure why you didn't just give me the answer if you know how to fix it.

    I wasn't available at the time you said Now or never, and you didn't respond to my email either.

    Oh well, so much for "Fixya"

The password can be removed or reset very easyly, but it debends what version is installed.

would you like to me fix it right now? I have remote support ready here.

http://www.fastsupport.com/859677097

that remote support link will work for about 2 hours but I will only be here for 20-50 minutes, so if you want it fixed now, I recommend we get to work right now.

I'm offering my help for free. Giving it away for free right now, are you intrested? I normally do remote support only in chat sessions, or sometimes in premium questions.

    Hmm, try downloading the software instead of using the active x thing. the download link comes up when you fail to accept the active x.. when the popup comes in ie about blocked object you should see the download link there.

  • Ekse Oct 01, 2008

    If our software does not start within one minute, manually download the software and click "Run" or "Open" when prompted. (You may be asked twice.)



    it says that on the page.

Have you tried going to acer.com? Most companys post the up to date drivers for their products there. You have to look under the Downloads/Support tab.

Hi, You need to Acer eNET Management, the empowering Technology,
using Acer eLock Management and Acer eRecovery Management, you must initialise the Empowering Technology password. Right-click on the Empowering Technology toolbar and select "Password Setup" this will enable you to do so. If you have not initialized the Empowering Technology password and run Acer eLock Management or Acer eRecovery Management, you must create it.
Acer eNet Management this will assist you to quickly connect to both wired and wireless networks. to access this utility, select "Acer eNet Management" from the Empowering Technology toolbar or
run the program from the Acer Empowering Technology program group in Start menu.

This should resolve your issue

How to install empowering technology


Acer support should have most of the drivers on their site for your model. If they do not- you probably will have to contact them for further assistance. Software is not always available from acer and their online support is kind of half 4ssed for u.s. customers. I usually have better luck getting drivers and support from the European sites for acer.
