Possible Virus and Malware
There is a good chance that you have a virus or malware that is keeping those programs from opening. It does not matter these days what security you have if the door to the web is opened. At the end of this are two links to programs that you should load up and run. The first is MalwareBytes Ant-Malware Tool, the other is Avast Anti-Virus 4.8, install these two and let them perform scans.

Run MalwareBytes first and perform a quick scan, when it finishes, it will ask you to post the results, when it does delete everything it finds.
Run Avast and install it, when it asks, go ahead and schedule a pre-boot scan of your entire system. This should get rid of most problems…. Good Luck…..

532h wireless


The Acer Aspire One is an inexpensive laptop computer that runs the Windows operating system. The computer does come with a built in Wi-Fi receiver, giving you the ability to connect to a wireless Internet network, when available.
However, if you are having trouble connecting to a wireless network, you must troubleshoot the network connection to determine exactly what is causing the problem with the Internet.
Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.
Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.

Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

also
Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon.
This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((·)))
Make sure its pressed on.
The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in size from left to right.
Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network."
You will see a list of available wireless networks.
Wireless Acer laptop can be a massive boon to your productivity when it is working properly and a massive headache when it is not.
When your laptop card begins to exhibit undesirable symptoms, such as signal dropping, you can avoid a hefty repair bill by performing at-home troubleshooting.
The best solution is to merely reinstall the software driver, which refers to the program that the operating system uses to speak the wireless card's language.

Open your operating manual and look up the model name and number for your laptop.
Navigate to the Acer Support web page (see Below) and click on the "Downloads" link.
http://support.acer.com/
Input the model number of your laptop, click on the "Search" button, download the wireless driver file for your laptop model and save the file to your desktop.
Open the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel" and open "Device Manager."
Open the "Network Adapters" menu, double-click on your wireless card, select the "Drivers" tab, click on the "Update Drivers" button and choose the desktop as the location to search for new drivers.
Click "Next" to reinstall the driver, fixing your wireless woes.

    My Acer Aspire One was working perfectly untill today, now it wont connect to the internet either by erthenet cable or wireless, each time i click on the browser icon it thinks about if for a few seconds...


    Here are some suggestions that may help you resolve your Acer Aspire One problem.
    Try to eliminate possible causes by
    1. Shut down / power off all the PCs - the Aspire One and those belonging to your son and daughter.
    2. Shut down / power off all game or multi-media consoles that can connect to internet via router.
    3. Power off any another network connected devices (hard drives, printers, scanners, picture frames)
    4. Power off your wireless router and cable/dsl modem for about five minutes.
    5. Power on your cable/dsl modem.
    6. After a couple of minutes, power on your wireless router.
    7. Power on your Aspire One and a few minutes after desktop is loaded, shut off its wireless.
    8. On the desktop's Taskbar, make sure the Wireless Network Connection icon has a red x beside it.
    9. Look for the double-screen icon representing Local Area Connection in the desktop's Taskbar.
    10. If not there, click start, control panel, network connections and right-click Local Area Connection.
    11. Click enable on the pop-up to enable the Local Area Connection and its icon appears with red x.
    12. Connect ethernet cable from one of the router's RJ-45 LAN ports to Aspire One's ethernet port.
    13. The red x should disappear from the double screen icon in the Taskbar.
    14. Hovering your mouse cursor over the icon should get a pop-up with the connection's status.
    15. If OK, click on your IE browser icon on the desktop.
    16. If nothing happens, click start button at bottom left and click on IE in start menu or program list.
    17. If nothing happens, press Ctrl and Alt and Del key together to bring up Windows Task Manager
    18. In WTM, click Applications tab to see if IE Task is running.
    19. If not, click Processes tab to see if iexplore.exe process is running.
    20. If not, check if you can start anything else such as Notepad.
    21. If nothing starts, you should consider doing a recovery using Acer eRecovery Management.
    22. If IE does start, click on its Tools tab then click on Diagnose Connection Problems...
    23. Follow on-screen instructions to diagnose your connection problem.
    24. If successful, close down IE, remove ethernet cable and restart the Acer Aspire One.
    25. Disconnect the ethernet cable and turn on the Acer One's wireless with its wireless switch.
    26. Big green letters "Wireless LAN Enabled" should appear momentarily at bottom of desktop
    27. Followed by a pop-up balloon over the Taskbar's wireless icon announcing connection made.
    28. Open IE browser again, click on its Tools tab then click on Diagnose Connection Problems.
    29. Follow on-screen instructions to diagnose your connection problem.
    30. If OK, the problem may be an interaction with one of the other networked devices/systems.
    31. Redo this procedure but power on one of the other devices/systems before the Aspire One.
    32. Redo one at a time for each of the other device/systems.
    33. If the Aspire One is found to be OK with all of the devices/systems connected one at a time
    34. Then the problem may be when ALL of the devices/systems are on and connected.
    For example, depending how it is setup, the router's DHCP may have run out of IP addresses.
    Another example is IP address conflict due to systems not flushing their IP cache on restarting.
    These two examples assume the problem exists regardless either on wired or wireless connection.
    If just one of the devices/systems is causing the problem, it may have been infected with a virus.

    my daughter just right clicks the icon on the task bar and exits the program on her acer, she still accesses the internet, this kept getting on nerves too with the bubble popping up saying connected, disconnected, just right click it and exit it, and it should solve your problem.
