Question about Acer Computers & Internet
What kind of anti-virus and anti-malware programs are you running? This sounds like you might have been infected by a trojan/virus and that one or the other or even both of your anti-virus/anti-malware programs are blocking a hijacked home page. If this is indeed the case, the antivirus and/or anti-malware programs are doing the jobs they are supposed to do. You will need to run an excellent anti-malware program such as MalwareBytes located here
and SuperAntiSpyware located here
Run those two programs after updating them of course to ascertain the status of your computer. Let the programs do the job they are intended to do, i.e. scan and remove what they find, then reboot your computer. I also suggest the use of a good FREE antivirus program called AVAST Home Free version located here
Avast has been my antivirus of choice for over 4 years now, great automatic updating and free registration for a year at a time. You will have to go to to the website to complete their registration form, but it's simple as pie and you love the fact that you did. So do at least the first two things, then come back to us with word of what you found on your system.
