This looks like a computer virus to me, i'll tell you what to do. first of all, internet explorer is not safe, use firefox instead which you can download for free here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/
try scanning your computer with an up to date antivirus, if you don't have one, try "AVG FREE" which you can also download for free at: www.download.com.
i guess this should take care of your problem. good luck.

Can not connect to internet using my acer notebook and have no icon to click on to


Hi richard g le...

Left click on Start and look at the top of the pop open window, you should see "Internet Explorer, you can double left click on that and connect to the internet.
Also if you left click on it and hold the mouse button down you can "Drag and Drop" the internet icon on your desktop where it will be an icon on your desktop and you can connect to the internet whenever you click on it.

My Acer Aspire 7720 cannot connect to the internet


go to network and sharing center. it should be where you click on the internet icon down at the bottom in taskbar right side. when it opens try setting up a new network. if that don't do it check to make sure your wi fi is on or needs resetting. also on that page in the network center is a pretty good troubleshooter. good luck

My Acer Aspire laptop 7540-1284 was purchased 2 months ago. I want to know how long a full battery charge should last


Depending on what you are doing and the Cell design of the battery, on a new system 2 to 3 hours on a 6 cell battery is fairly standard. Things like the brightness on the LCD, if you are using the DVD drive can also effect the run time of the battery.
