Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

I have an acer aspire one netbook. I somehow

I have an acer aspire one netbook. I somehow contracted WinPC Defender on it. Have run multiple programs to rid myself of this nasty little malware, but nothing works. This is less concerning to me than the other part of my problem which is that I cannot get onto the internet. Every time I try I get the error message saying the page cannot be loaded. I run the diagnostic tool, and it resets something and restarts the computer, but still won't work. I have been told the the Winsock provider catalogue may have a problem, so I have reset that a couple times, but to no avail. Please help!

If you haven't run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware then I would suggest running it, below is the link to it, when you click on the link, look to the right and download the latest version. Once it installs, it will want to update, allow that and run the program. Perform a quick scan only......When it is finished it will advise you to click on the "post results" button, do so and delete anything it finds.

I'm installing Zavio CCTV (F312A Wireless IP Camera) Surveillance software into my Acer Aspire One Happy netbook. Installation done correctly with out any error. After I click on Main Console icon to start...


If you can't get the included software to work and you are looking for another option, there is a nice free webcam / IPcam monitoring program available from VitaminD Inc.

The basic version is completely free and has amazing motion detect capabilities and works great with webcams or wireless IPcams as long as you only have 1 camera to monitor.

The paid versions allow multiple cameras to be connected and monitored and allow for even higher resolutions than the free version.

Here is a direct link to the CNET Free Download page where you can read about it and download it free if you want to:

have you downloaded any thing recent? this may be the cause ......... all I can suggest is restore the systems far back as the beginning of December last year.......(when everything was probably running smooth)


good luck

My acer aspire is so slow when i open multiple windows.


netbooks in general aren't that fast so you'll need to optimize the computer:

I recommend running: CCleaner to clean the registry and clean up internet cache etc.

And Defraggler to defrag the drive.

You can get everything and more EASILY from ninite.com

Check it out ;)

I just bought a new Acer netbook (A0532h - Model # NAV50) from Staples. The wireless connection is fair (same as my other laptop) yet the page transitions on my new netbook are painfully slow. Any...


This device should be about 90% as fast as your laptop.
The slowness could be caused by the number of programs you have opened at any given time. The system is not really designed to run multiple programs.
It can also be caused by the excess software on the hard-drive, and its condition.
Try removing any 'demo' software and other programs that you will not use (stay away from the OS) and then run the defrag program in Windows.

MY LAPTOP IS RUNNING SLOW


This model is a "netbook" not a "notebook", the difference being "notebook" units have better processors and better motherboards .. especially when regulating RAM, bigger harddrives and it's an Acer, which may I add has an excellent track record with faulty units, netbooks or otherwise, and has terrible customer service.

How can I get rid of WinPC defender from my computer.


Hi Church Sec,

I sympathize with your plight. These fake spyware protectors are a real nuisance.

The easiest way to get rid of WinPC Defender & other malware is to keep an up-to-date antivirus software installed and running on the computer, and to avoid using Internet Explorer for browsing the web if possible.

A good antivirus package will prevent these sort of malicious popups from installing themselves on your computer, and will prevent other types of viruses as well (such as those that come via email). They offer an easy-to-use control panel for managing the security of the computer as a whole.

Firefox (available at http://getfirefox.com) is overall a much better browser than Internet Explorer. It's safer, as well as more accurate in the way it displays websites.

If this is a church computer and your church has IT support, then consult with them on how to proceed with the antivirus software and which one they recommend.

If you're on your own, I've had good results with Kaspersky antivirus software (you can download a free trial here). Some packages that often come as free promotions (Norton and McAfee, for example) are good-enough as well. You can find much information and reviews on the web if you want more info to help you choose one.

The other thing you want to do is keep your Windows up-to-date (with Windows Automatic Updates). If you need help with this, it's best to post a separate question.
