Welcome to Fixya. I would like to know if the wifi works before? If the laptop was able to detect and connect to a wireless signal and the Iconia won't you can check the warranty of the Iconia and call acer and they will be able to replace the unit. This is a common issue with Iconia that some of the device has a hardware wifi defect. You can also refer to the link below and see what happen with their Iconia and was able to talk to acer for a replacement.

Hold the power button in for the count of ten, it should shut it down and cause it to ask you to boot up in safe mood, it may take a couple of tries but it will eventually go to a menu to ask for the boot mode....I recommend spyhunter4...I just removed that virus from a clients pc two days ago
