Acer eLock Problem

I have a computer that didn't come with eLock, but the drives got locked somehow anyways. I installed eLock on the system and tried locking and unlocking the drives, but it still didn't work.

Do you have any suggestions?

    I actually had to download an update from Acer and it fixed the problem. There is a program called LANScope that has an update for the following issues:
    FDD/CD/DVD drive not seen
    FDD/CD/DVD drive not accessible
    USB drive not seen
    USB drive not accessible

    They suggest downloading it if locking and unlocking the drives doesn't fix the problem. I downloaded it and it worked like a charm.

    This is the url:

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    thank you. The LANScope downland worked for me. I have been trying to find a solution (other than the standard ACER reformat your PC one) for ages and have been unable to use my CD drive because of it.

Yes I have fixed this problem a number of times now over remote support.
I can suggest that you look into the services
(start -> run -> services.msc)
Look for Elock service.

If your intrested I can look at it over remote support.

    Forgot to mention that if you find the elock service, right click on it and properties, startup change it to disabled and then stop it. Click ok and close the window, see if the drives work if not restart the computer.

Does anyone know how to open Folder Lock after you've lost or forgot your password?

The problem with this type of thing is that there are liability issues. How does anyone know that you are the owner of the files being stored on that drive? Nobody with any conscience will help you circumvent security on a digital system.. It's that simple. First of all, it's illegal. If I helped you and you gained access to someone else's files, I'd be liable. They likely aren't retrievable anyway. Most modern encryption schemes are so good that it's impossible to reverse them without the key. If they truly are your files and you lost the password...YOU LOST THE FILES. It's your responsibility. Best practice for things like this is to write the password down on a piece of paper and put it in a secure location. Preferably a safe. If you did not do that, and relied on your brain to store that stuff, best you can do is go see a hypnotist to try and remember. Sorry.. I know it' not what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth. Hope you remember.

Please guide the steps to install the norton antivirus 360 latest version one user

The easiest way, open your CD drive and with that open shut down your computer. Insert the Disk in the drive and close it then restart the computer. The installation program should start auto automatically as windows starts. The reason I said to shut down then reboot with the disk in the drive is to allow the program to scan your system before windows starts to speed up the install process. If you insert the Disk and close the drive while the computer is on it will auto start and scan the system anyway but it takes longer. Make sure you stop and uninstall any other anti virus programs or Anti Adware programs, such as Spy Bot, you may have running, the Adware programs only need to be closed.
