Write down the exact error messages ....... that you receive while the computer is booting Windows.
Click "Start > Run Type "msconfig" in the field and click "OK." Click the BOOT.INI tab.
Check the box next to "/SAFEBOOT." Choose "MINIMAL" to reboot Windows in safe mode. Select "NETWORK" to reboot in safe mode with network support. Choose "DSREPAIR" to reboot in Directory Service restore mode.
Click "Performance and Maintenance" in Control Panel. Select "System." Select the "Hardware" tab. Click "Device Manager." Select the device that you added to your computer most recently. Right click the device and select "Properties." Click the "Troubleshoot" button and select the option that best describes the symptoms your device is experiencing.
Click on all of the plus signs next to the entries in Device Manager to expand all the devices. See if there are any black exclamation marks on a yellow triangle. This indicates a problem with your device. Also see if there are any red X marks near the devices. This indicates that the device is disabled.
Click "Start > Run." Type "msconfig" and select "OK." In the BOOT.INI tab, uncheck the /SAFEBOOT option. Reboot your computer. If the computer starts normally, you're finished. If it doesn't, reboot in safe mode and click "Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System Restore. and Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time." Choose a date on the calendar that is at least one day prior to the time that your computer began experiencing boot problems.
Reinstall any software programs or hardware you removed one at a time. Reboot the computer after each installation. Make careful notes of any error messages or boot problems you experience.
Reboot the computer in "Safe" mode and run it for a while and see if the same problems occur. If it doesn't, then I would suspect it is a software and not a hardware problem.
If you think it is a software problem, reboot the computer into safe mode again. Now click the start button and in the search box type MSCONFIG
When the window pops up click the "Selective Startup" button and then on the startup tab. Deselect all the checked boxes, click apply and ok, reboot the computer normally.
Now only the essential services will load and no programs will automatically load. If the computer continues to run normally, then you can go back into MSCONFIG go to the strat tab and start checking a few boxes to start again, like antivirus and malware first. Reboot the computer and see if it freezes with those programs running....if it does then you know one of those is the culprit, if not click a few more on and reboot until you find the trouble software.

I have searched the Acer website and the user guide for your model and can find no reference to the edata software referenced. I think that a system restore is what you need. Per the manual press alt-f10 to enter the utilities and create a system restore cd and an application restore cd reboot with the system cd and restore the computer to a factory fresh condition. Remember that no user data will be saved so if you have documents or pictures etc. make a copy first. Good Luck
try logging in safe mode and reboot the pc after loading safe mode I have had programs crash installing and I loaded safe mode and restarted pc and in safe mode it fix the problem.. so when I restarted pc it worked ok.. the program mighted of corrupted and you might have to uninstall it and reinstall it I dont remember if acer has a app disk like dell,emachines(new),gateway or ifs a full restore disk.. Im thinking that its a app disk.. you might also want to check for viruses. with a program like house call free scanner from trend.. and spyware scanner free adaware. both are good.
if you still cannot login to windows you can run msconfig in run box and disable it in startup but becareful with what you disable
the warning is as follows: "this software is malfunctioning.please reboot the computer. and try again,if the problem persist, please close all running programs and reinstal Acer edata security management"
This warning is beeing shown several times a day.
Thanks for your help!
Ok that is just a program that comes with the Acer laptops, it really is Useless and I dont use it on my computer, its part of the acer e management , e recovery, and etc programs that acer made. To fix this you can uninstall it under the ADD/remove programs or if you want to keep it you can then goto the acer website and under support put your model number in and download that particular software again and it might fix itself if there where some type of missing files on that particular software. Secondly if this is a vista machine it could be the software is not compatible and it causes the OS to crash which then comes with that error to the user and never goes away . Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
you should have taken same back to the store upon initial headache. sounds like a spyware/malware problem, or a virus trojan. run the anti virus program. you can find the Acer e data by doing a Search for same, look on the right toolbar for their icon.
