Question about Acer Aspire One A150-1006 Notebook
Acer aspire one, cpu overused
Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

For aspire one you need to download the Fedora 7 package from the Skype Website.
Afterwards, just do what your aspire asks you to do. When everything is installed, just press alt+F2, type in "skype", en press "Run". Skype will start up. That's it

Well, viruses- what fun. My advice, download AVG Free 8.0. It is a free virus removal and protection program by Girosoft. This program will get rid of the virus. If the computer begins to shut its self down, then yes, reformatt. But afterwoods, install AVG and keep it gong. You should never have another virus again. And if you do, avg will get rid of it.
Thats just my say.

It also sounds like you have a cooling issue with your processor. Try removing that is over the area of the exhaust vents and clean all the dust and **** off the vents, heat sink, and fan. You may have to remove the fan to do so.

Your best bet is to do the following;
1 download either SuperAntiSpyware or MalWareBytes update via the internet and scan the disk (these are excellent and both Free)
2 Remove any Malwere they recommend
3 If the message still comes up download and run Trojan Remover - this will remove it.
Then make sure you are protected in future by installing an anti-virus system like (if you dont want to pay) Avira or Avast or if you do Kaspersky or Bitdefender

Try holding down the power button for around 15 or 20 seconds and the power light should go off and then reboot computer. It is going into sleep mode when you shut the kid, you can change that in your control panel settings.
Let me know if that works.

There are many things that might cause your PC to run
slowly. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or
spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high
disk I/O; or something else.
To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.
If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:
An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( http://download.cnet.com/advanced-systemcare-free/3000-2086_4-10407614 .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.
You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is http://download.cnet.com -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.
I have used AVG Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avg-anti-virus-free/3000-2239_4-10320142.html ) , and Avast Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avast-free-antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.htm l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.
I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-22 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.
In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( http://download.cnet.com/ad-aware-free-internet/3000-8022_4-10045910.h tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.
