Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

What is the best protection for my Acer Aspire One notebook? When I bought it I had Norton Antivirus put on it becasue the guy at Future Shop said Norton 360 would slow my notebook down. I am now finding out that there is no firewall protection other than from windows and on-line banking is risky. Is the Norton 360 Version 4.0 for Netbooks a good thing to upgrade too or will it slow my notebook down?

The bottom line is any good anti virus program will slow it down but not enough that you would even notice. Norton is good.

System has a virus mbr invected by bloodhpund.mbr how do I delete this. I purchased Norton 2010 but it won't remopve the problem says it needs to be installed but can't get into system to install.


You're Acer probably has Rescue and Recovery™ installed. Rescue and Recovery is a suite of self-recovery tools to help you diagnose, get help, and recover your system.

When you set the Bloodhound heuristics in Norton AntiVirus to it's highest setting you probably ran a virus scan and saw a Norton AntiVirus alert that states that it's detected a potential threat, Bloodhound.MBR. But this is probably not a virus but the recovery software on your laptop.

Solution:

If you have IBM Rescue and Recovery and Norton AntiVirus Bloodhound heuristics are configured to the highest setting, Norton AntiVirus may alert you with a Bloodhound.MBR detection when you run a virus scan. To avoid this, configure your Bloodhound heuristics to the default setting.

To reset Bloodhound to the default setting
  1. Start Norton AntiVirus.
    If Norton AntiVirus was installed as part of Norton Internet Security or Norton SystemWorks, then start one of those programs.
  2. Click Options.
    If you see a submenu, then click Norton AntiVirus.
  3. Click Auto-Protect.
  4. Click Bloodhound.
  5. Click Default level of protection (recommended).
  6. Click OK
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 for Manual Scan.
    In step 3, substitute Manual Scan for Auto-Protect.
  8. Exit Norton AntiVirus.

Why does the cursor freeze on my brand new computer (out of the box for about 30 minutes)? Acer Aspire 5534 Tried to create backup disk & cursor froze, restarted my computer & cursor froze again....


Acer has a recovery icon in desktop no need to back up a new PC.....But i would advise u take it back...that freezing is an error in the OS system

Internet Explorer wont connect to the internet


Try putting in https://www.microsoft.com


Or www.filehippo.com where you can download a copy of the latest IE to re-install it is case you have a corupted file in the old installation

Finally were you using Zone Labs as a Firewall if so then you may still have their True Vector Monitor running in the background , you need to go into "Search" put in True Vector and delete any files it finds with that name)

Ps

You really wasted your money on Norton , it slows the machine down big style and is a pain

NOD32 Anti Virus is a much better product and a combination of a router with its built in Firewall and the standard Windows Firewall give you as much protection
