Usually you can press
alt+F10 multiple times when you see the acer logo in the beginning of the boot to start recovery mode.

if its vista on the computer you can press F8 til the vista boot menu comes up, and you choose "Repair computer".
after you choose language and user, you choose the bottom choice wich should be "acer factory restore".

This is could be one sign of a corrupted system a bad install of the operating system(reccomend re-install of original Operating System,if possible this should restore your options,providing this is done correctly.Second culpprit would be malicious couding/virus knocking your OS out.

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/

Virus


I'm not sure where you were going with this, but I believe you can fix this yourself. Run a virus scan, then go into the virus vault in the anti virus software and empty the vault. If the virus did damage to the operating system, do a system restore. However if the operating system is damaged beyond repair or restore, you will need to do a system reload using either a recovery disc or an operating system disc. If you don't have these discs you can purchase a Windows operating disc at Walmart or Bestbuy.
