If you have a Factory Restore CD from Acer, you can boot the laptop with that in the drive, and it will start you on the process of restoring it to the factory configuration.

I have an emachine el 1200 07w and I keep getting restore failed 0x00000070. What do I do?


Remove any DVDs or CDs from the optical drives and then unplug all peripheral devices except for the keyboard and mouse. Click the "Windows" button and then type "eMachines recovery management" into the search box. Click on "eMachines recovery management" in the results list and then click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" and then type a new password into the text box. Click "OK" and then click "Restore System to Factory Default". Type the recovery password into the "Password" text box and then click "OK". Click "Next" To start the recovery process. Click "Finish" and then wait for your computer to restart. This procedure could take several minutes. Once your computer has restarted, you'll be prompted to create a new user account, enter the date and time and set up the internet settings.
or if you are running XP If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.

You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.

You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system.
This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html

Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

More information here http://www.ask-the-computer-doc.com/comp...

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.

You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa... Source(s): http://www.ask-the-computer-doc.com/comp...

Hi, I want to reboot my acer aspire 4736z as the internet explorer is not working. pls help


Hi,

It appears that Internet Explorer is corrupted on your computer, you can restore the computer back to factory default, to do so, follow the below steps:
Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction.

NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Why does my internet freeze? what can I do


If your computer as a whole is freezing, then you have to check for viruses / malware.
But, if it is only your internet that freezes up, then try resetting your Internet Explorer.
I am presuming that you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8, as your browser.
To reset Internet Explorer (IE) :-
1. Open Internet Explorer .
2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons
check box, and then click OK.
5. Switch to the Security tab.
6. Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.
7. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
8. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
9. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click
Close, and then click OK .
10. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions option in the Settings box
11. Close Internet Explorer . The changes take effect the next time that
you open Internet Explorer .
Try to reset IE, as explained above.
Even after resetting IE, if IE still freezes, then there may be some viruses / malware on your computer.

Ie sync client has stopped working


Hi. If your Issue is about your internet explorer then you could just try using a different browser like mozilla firefox or google chrome, about the performance of your computer you can clean some files on your C: drive or perform a virus scan, or if you want you could restore your system to its original factory settings by accessing the Recovery Partition on your laptop, by the way before you restore your system make sure that you have a backup of all your important files on a flash drive or on a external harddrive because when you use the One Key Recovery (OKR) it would delte everything on your computer and restore it to its original settings just like the first time you got your machine. The way to acces the OKR is to press the NOVO button or the small button just beside the power button and make sure that the ac adapter is plugin to your computer, and from there just choose system recovery and it will guide you to the whole process of recovering you machine. hope this helps

Acer Aspire One error when trying to connect to internet: iexplore.exe - Ordinal Not Found The ordinal 650 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll. Sometimes the number (650) is...


1. Install another browser: For e.g. FLOCK
2. Are you able to browse?

If so then we have isolated the problem to Internet Explorer:

1. Which version of IE are you using?

Either way:
1. uninstall it completely
2. Download and reinstall the latest version of IE

And just in case please do a VIRUS SCAN:
1. DiskClean up of C drive (always do this before a virus scan)
2. Total Virus Scan of Hard Disk (make sure Virus application is updated first)

About System Restore:
Windows does not allow you do to a restore from before it happened because it did not save any restore date from prior to (perhaps system restore is not enabled so be sure to double check this); therefore:

1. You're going to have to try to fix this isolated problem manually

OR

2. RESTORE to factory settings: take all ur data off and restore to factory settings and then put ur data back thereafter.

My Internet Explorer (1st version) is not connecting, but Firefox is even though there is internet connection. Explorer keeps on telling me that "Web Proxy" is not set up to establish a connection port...


FIRST, Make sure you have the operating system restore or a copy of the operating system installation CD or DVD.
SECOND, download and run a full virus scan. To try to remove traces of the virus. Once your system is comprised you have no guarantee that a virus will re submerge.
THIRD, Back up all of your data, ie My Documtents, Favorites, Desktop, to blank CD or DVD. DO NOT BACKUP ANY EXECUTABLES.
FOURTH, Format and re-install the operating system. Return your backups as needed.

After clicking on a link that I know is good, I keep getting Internet explorer cannot display webpage


That can only happen if windows believes you are not connected to the internet. Have you looked at your connection settings in IE? Make sure they are set to LAN. An easier way is to restore to a day you know everything was ok.

Either that, or do you have phishing software or virus software which is preventing the page opening.

Internet explorer / scolling screen


hi,
I think you might have spyware or internet explorer file missing problem. So either you can uninstall browser and run set up again or go to microsoft.com and check any updates available for your Operating system or Browser.
You should use WinXP Manager Software for cleaning up any problem with your browser or any system files.
