Go to the Acer website or google edatasecurity management. Find a place to download and reinstall the software. I had the same problem and that fixed it, heres the thing though... there are 2 versions of the edata security program, and both SEEM to work, but only one really does, the other will just give you new errors. I can't remember which is which, all I remember is that it varies based on your machine. Mine recently quit though so I'm going to try and fix it now just to see...

If the lights are on, it means that the power supply is intact. The first thing you should do is reboot your computer.
If the problem persists, try using another mouse. If that does not solve your problem, check the mouse's drivers under device manager, (click on the start button, then select Device manager).
If there is a red or yellow mark beside the mouse, update or reinstall the mouse drivers. Uninstall from Add/Remove Programs(Xp) or Programs and Features (Vista/7).
I have searched the Acer website and the user guide for your model and can find no reference to the edata software referenced. I think that a system restore is what you need. Per the manual press alt-f10 to enter the utilities and create a system restore cd and an application restore cd reboot with the system cd and restore the computer to a factory fresh condition. Remember that no user data will be saved so if you have documents or pictures etc. make a copy first. Good Luck
try logging in safe mode and reboot the pc after loading safe mode I have had programs crash installing and I loaded safe mode and restarted pc and in safe mode it fix the problem.. so when I restarted pc it worked ok.. the program mighted of corrupted and you might have to uninstall it and reinstall it I dont remember if acer has a app disk like dell,emachines(new),gateway or ifs a full restore disk.. Im thinking that its a app disk.. you might also want to check for viruses. with a program like house call free scanner from trend.. and spyware scanner free adaware. both are good.
if you still cannot login to windows you can run msconfig in run box and disable it in startup but becareful with what you disable
the warning is as follows: "this software is malfunctioning.please reboot the computer. and try again,if the problem persist, please close all running programs and reinstal Acer edata security management"
This warning is beeing shown several times a day.
Thanks for your help!
Ok that is just a program that comes with the Acer laptops, it really is Useless and I dont use it on my computer, its part of the acer e management , e recovery, and etc programs that acer made. To fix this you can uninstall it under the ADD/remove programs or if you want to keep it you can then goto the acer website and under support put your model number in and download that particular software again and it might fix itself if there where some type of missing files on that particular software. Secondly if this is a vista machine it could be the software is not compatible and it causes the OS to crash which then comes with that error to the user and never goes away . Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
you should have taken same back to the store upon initial headache. sounds like a spyware/malware problem, or a virus trojan. run the anti virus program. you can find the Acer e data by doing a Search for same, look on the right toolbar for their icon.
