    What operating system are you running?
    I'm sure you've tried rebooting right? Safeboot?

    You say Yahoo locked out your mail? That is indicative of them shutting your mail down because your PC has become a "spambot"
    Sounds like your infected with spyware or a virus, you might need a good cleanup of your PC.

My Acer Aspire desktop computer, which was working just fine before Christmas, has slowed to a crawl and everytime I open a window it stops responding. Refer to the details below and thank you in adva


Andrew, have you followed the information provided by Microsoft for Vista and using Startup Repair?

Have you tried doing a System Restore to put the system back to when it was last working fine - this should help if the problem is caused by a bad Windows Update fix or similar system change?

How much memory do you have on your Acer Aspire computer - Vista needs at least 2GB to run reasonably well, more if available subject to the limit of 3.5GB for 32bit operating systems.

Even though you are running Norton 360 security software - it is still possible that you may have a virus infection - all security software is only as good as the decisions made by the computer user - click on a 'bad' link on a web page and answer a security message wrongly and all bets are off!

Download and burn a copy of the free AVG Rescue CD and boot your computer from this to check that you have no virus infection(s).

What is the performance like when started in Safe Mode? If it is back to how you expect, then again it suggests that something recently installed has changed things - try disabling any Startup programs - you can use the free CCleaner utility from Piriform to help you do this by going to the Tools page then selecting Startup which will show a list of what programs are being started each boot - you can disable any of these by using the Disable button or with the mouse on the entry.

I have an Acer Aspire AM3910-E2512. I moved recently and now the computer won't boot up. It keeps trying to 'repair disc' but it ges for hours. I opened the side and there is one set of wires that


That is typical to have extra power connectors not plugged in. The PSU will have extra connectors in case you add other peripherals. Most likely you just have a corrupted operating system. A system restore if you have the disc would be the easiest way to repair this. However you will lose your data. If you have the restore disc they typically will have some repair utilities to try and fix the corruption.

Is there any way to recover lost email in yahoo pl? thanks


If it was within the past 24 hours, you can ask Yahoo! to restore it for you. Otherwise I am sorry, but they are gone permanently.

I have an acer aspire AST180 UA381B and I need the system restore disks but they do not carry them anymore. What can I do?


I would suggest you install Linux Mint 10, a free operating system.

Without the restore disks,you would have to buy a new Windows CD. Have a friend burn an ISO image of Linux Mint. Just go to www.linuxmint.com, and there are lots of helpful tips there on how to install. Linux Mint has a similar feel to Windows, so it should be good!

I tried to restore my Acer T180 and installed my restore disk. Unfortunately, they were the wrong disks. They were from my eMachine. They worked but now I can't register my Windows operating system. If...


Yes, when you use the actual discs that came with the computer you computer will be restored to normal. These Operating systems are called BIOS locked CDs, if they detect the right brand BIOS / motherboard they will install the OEM edition of the OS, hence you need not activate it or it will get activated properly.

NEW Norton installed, now I cannot access the internet


hi,
i think your acer laptop comes with its own data protection s/w provided by acer , so it recommended to contact acer or norton because it is recommended to use only one security s/w at a time as they share the common system files for protection

best of luck

Computer "rebooted" or somehting and accidently lost everything


You will need to take the hard drive out of your computer and connect it to someone else's computer as a second drive so that you can pull the files off before reinstalling Windows.
