You have a manual for your Acer, in it's memory, which is located at the program "Acer System", as well as all the software your machine came with in a hidden partition of your drive. Go to the backup and restore center, and you will be able to make CDs or DVDs of all your hardware, separate from your data. You will need a dozen or so CDs. You did turn on automatic updates from Microsoft?. You may not need the one's Acer lists--
they done keep track of what you have on your machine, and some of the listd available Acer downloads actually were incompatible with mine. To find out each program on your Maching, (Acer won't know), download the freeware Belarc Advisor (google it), it's free, and will tell you all of your hardware and softtware with serial numbers on your machinge. Break in the battery to exhaustion 3 times to maximize its charge. Then remove it and only use it when you need to, letting it completely discharge before recharging it. Otherwise, it will take less and less of a charge, and the battery has to be replaced after about 300 full charges.

To reboot, just click on the globe, usully in the lower left corner, then in the bar just above the globe, go to the right end where ther is an arrow, and tap your cursor there, which will give you the opportunity to shut down with or without rebooting. If your computer is frozen, just push the same button you use to start it, and keep it pressed until you hear the machine shut down. If you do that, when it reboots, it will tell you that it wasn't shut down properly, and ask if you want to start regularly, or using diagnostic modes. Try booting regularly. Then read the manual. There are two excellent free antivirul software products, Avira and AVG. I like the latter because it upgrades by itself. You must eliminate Norton--your free trial, since you cant use two antivirus programs at once. If you have trouble creating your system disks, call Acer at customer support at 800 816-2237, 8 to 5:30 and if you get a rep who won't help you, demand to speak to a supervisor, If they tell you it is a Microsoft problem, not theirs, they lie--all preinstalled microsoft programs are serviced by the computer manufacturer, not microsoft. Acer sold a lot of cheapos with Vista loaded with only 512 MG ram. If that is the case, you are doomed to crashing until you put in at least 1 to 2 GB And dont buy it from Acer. Identify what you need with Belarc, then go online to identify a cheap source. Hope I didnt get to you too late.Acer pretends they dont have live help, but they do. Don't bother using their interactive online system--it will drive you to the loonybin. Good luck.
