Hi try this when your Pc is booting up hold down the F8 key and boot into safe mode. Next if you are then able to get into safe mode try uninstalling Macfee. after Macfee if unistalled reboot your pc normally again.

Let me know if this works

Try booting to "Safe Mode" (tapping the "F8" key on boot), or however you can get to your Desktop, click start, right click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced" tab, then click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery", then uncheck "Automatically restart" under "System Failure", click "OK" then "OK" again and restart your PC.

That should allow you to run without the instant restarting on BSOD, so you can repair/remove Mcafee.

Reset acer


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to Start > Restart to reboot your netbook.

Hold down Alt and F10 when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit Enter and then Next to see your recovery options.
Choose Factory Restore to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.
or
When a vital file becomes corrupted, it might be necessary to restore a computer to its original factory settings.
This process also cleans up the hard drive and removes old programs that can make a computer slow and unresponsive.
But, because restoration wipes away all files you have installed or created, it should be a last-ditch effort in trying to repair a computer.
If you have reached this point with your Acer laptop or desktop, the manufacturer provides a utility to restore the factory settings.

Open the Windows Start menu by clicking on the icon in the lower left corner of your desktop.
Click All Programs, then the Acer folder.

Select Acer eRecovery Management to open the utility.
If a Windows prompt asks for permission to run the program, click Yes.

Click the Restore button in the pane on the left side of the program window.
Click Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults.
Select the Yes option in the dialog box that asks you to confirm the action, and click Start.
Click OK in the second confirmation dialog box to restart the computer.
Click Next in the warning window that appears after the computer reboots.
This confirms that you realize restoring the computer deletes any data stored on your hard drive.

Click Next again in the Restore Destination window, and click OK in the popup that gives you one last warning about deleting your data.
The restoration process will begin.

Click OK when the utility lets you know that the restoration is complete.
The computer will restart, and Windows will finish the recovery process.

How do i format it to how it was when i got it


If you still have the disk for your OS then the process is fairly simple. Insert the disc and reboot the computer. While the computer is booting hold down ESC or possibly F2, F8, or F12. A boot menu should open up before your operating system begins to load and you should pick to boot from CD Drive. When the setup loads, go through the menus until you get to the section of where to install the OS. Delete all the partitions on your computer and then reinstall the OS on the new one. This will delete everything on your laptop and just have a clean copy of your OS.

If you don't have the original CD you can download and burn this onto a CD and boot it from CD. This will securely wipe your hard drive.

I suggest going to the Acer Aspire website, downloading the drivers and transferring them over to your laptop using a USB drive. Once you get the network drivers installed, you can begin re-acquiring all the software that you lost due to your reinstall.

If you have a flash drive available try downloading Mozzilla Firefox onto it from another computer from this site: http://download.cnet.com/mozilla-firefox/?tag=mncol
Load it onto your computer and see if that will get your internet going. I had the same problem and tried this, and wouldn't you know it, I like Firefox better anyway!

Acer 6930 recovery problem


About the only thing to try is to find another person with the same PC.

Remove the disk-drive from your computer.
Remove the disk-drive from the other computer,
and install your disk-drive.

Run the Restore Disks on that computer,
which will restore to _YOUR_ disk-drive.

When complete, remove the disk-drive, and reinstall it in your computer.
It should boot, and run properly.

Could it be your CD-ROM drive that is intermittently failing?

Are you able to restore the computer if so that may be your problem. By the way you have explained it seems like a software problem and not a hardware one.
