You don't need to pay acer the 100usd to get the password removed, 
one thing you can try first, is to disable the elock service from 
start -> run -> type in services.msc
look for elock service right click properties startup type disabled and stop the service, on some elocks this is enought to stop it from working. but it debends I can fix this and I have done it many times now..

Create the Acer Empowering Technology password
After user privileges have been confirmed, you will be prompted to create an Acer Empowering Technology password if one does not exist.
The Acer eLock Management utility prompts to create an Acer Empowering Technology password with the window message “ This utility needs to set up a password before using it.” The two buttons at the bottom are “Setup” and “Cancel”. Clicking the “Setup” button leads to the window “ Empowering Technology Password Center” with the button marked “ Create a New Password”. Clicking the button Opens the third window prompting for “New Password”, “Confirm” and “Hint”.
The user interface
Acer eLock Management utilizes a simple graphical user interface to lock and unlock drives, devices and interfaces for which access can be controlled and are listed on the main screen, each with a lock and unlock button. After modifying settings, click the “Apply” button to enable changes. After clicking "Apply" or attempting to close the user interface with altered settings, an “Enter Pass word” dialog will appear. The Acer Empowering Technology password will have to be entered to enable the new settings, or press “Cancel” to abandon the modification.
Entering the password completes the operations and the Device is now locked. Once a device is locked the device will be disabled by Acer eLock Management and the drive icon and letter will not appear in Windows Explorer. The device cannot be accessed unless Acer eLock Management Unlocking password is entered and the Device is Unlocked.
Entering your password
Whenever you attempt to change the status of a drive, device or interface you will be asked for the Acer Empowering Technology password.
If the wrong password is entered, click “Hint:” to get password hint or “Retry” to enter the password again.
Popup messages
When Acer eLock Management is in use, popup messages are displayed in the bottom-right corner of the screen to alert you to the status of drives, devices and interfaces. Acer eLock Management will display a message informing you of drive, device or interface status whenever media is detected or inserted.

  • 1. The password between four and eight alphanumeric Characters has scope for improvement.
  • 2. If password is forgotten , the notebook PC has to be taken to an Acer Customer Service Center.
I hope it helps!!!

Acer Elock problem


here is the elock guide http://static.tigerdirect.ca/pdf/Acer_eLock-Management-For_Desktops.pdf it will shed some light on what is happening. You may be able to disable the elock service from
start -> run -> type in services.msc
Look for elock service by scrolling down to it. Right click properties,change the startup type to "disabled" and stop the service, on some elocks this is enought to stop it from working. but it depends on if they've changed it recently. post again here if you need furthur assistance.. Reagards.

Acer e lock activated??????????????


I have a working workaround solution to this problem - save yourself 100usd (what acer requests from the unlocking) and press the ask me button to send me the free(FREE POST TO FORUM) request, Il give you the workaround, will take less than 10 minutes to solve the problem, really not worth it to pay 100usd for something this silly.

Il possibly soon make a video tutorial on how its done but for now, send me a request and il tell you how to get rid of the problem.
