Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
N~ 1.SCR looks like a truncaked screen saver name (when a name is longer then 8 characters, it comes up with the ~) the .scr is a screen saver extension.
Just as something to try, disable any and all screen savers you have running and see it the error stops.
Please inform after trying this.

Your C drive has become cluttered. Try Check Disk from ACCESSORIES-SYSTEM TOOLS and the chose de-fragment from the same(system tools0. If this does not help, go to start menu and remove all non-essential programs which are not needed all the time, like,Acrobat, MS Office, Any other media player except Windows Media Player and your Anti-Virus software. The rest of the programs will only start when you uchoose to use that particular software. For hint Open Task Manager and under PROCESS tab check how many applications are on .

Turn off the, or better yet uninstall, the Acer Screensaver. Something you installed, possibly a screensaver program? has corrupted the Acer screensaver causing that error message. That add-on screensaver is notoriously buggy anyway.

it's your screensaver, scr is screensaver (and acer scr is a screensaver from aces) so just change ur screensaver to a windows one and then it will work again :D i don't know why the acer screensavers don't work... if u really want them to work you may want to search their website :D

It sounds as if your hard drive is cluttered. Defrag it and then get a free program called CCleaner. Run that to clean your registry. That should solve your problem.
