I've had my computer since last Christmas worked fine until a month ago. It got some kind of virus after my Anti Virus expired. Windows Defender notified me of it, I downloaded another Anti Virus program and got rid of it. Next time I try to boot up it turns on.... and that's it. I can get into F8 and various other F buttons. Now it goes straight to system recovery options such as system restore and other things, I try to do the complete system restore and it say Cannot complete, corruption in (C:/). I called Acer and I still had warranty at the time but they won't cover a backup Vista cd. Of course it didn't come with my Acer, which is ********. However you need a credit card or debit card to order the cd, which I have neither. With today's economy, I'm a struggling 21 year old bartender, I can't afford brand new Vista. So now my $600 computer is worthless. =( I'm not even going to ask if anyone knows how to help me because I'm sure with my luck the only thing to fix it is new Vista! But if anyone has any tips on what I should do let me know. Thank youu<3

Are you sure that it's the driver that's causing it?
I suggest that you run an anti-virus scan. It might have been caused by a virus infection in your computer.
You can also try using RadarSync to scan your computer for driver problems (outdated drivers), then you can google the drivers and install. RadarSync will give recommendations. If you want RadarSync to do all the things for you, then you can buy the license.
Quite often you may have to do the removal and restart your PC. Once you have done that, check your registry to make sure you have removed any traces of flashplayer. Before you edit your registry, make sure you back it up first. Should something go awry, you can go back and recover to the back up registry file. Also make sure you do one product removal at a time and check that the reinstall removed all pieces.
This fault can be caused by so many different things: You should start by tracing back through the recent history of hardware, software, drivers or settings changes to the computer between now and the last time that the computer was working properly to eliminate as many items as possible from the long list of possibilities below so you can isolate the precise cause.

ya its probably a virus infection.
If possible run online scans... or install new antivirus software and scan your sys.
If nothing of this is possible or if they are not working..
its safer to reinstall Vista
