|hey, ok so let me get straight to the problem with my comp: it is MESSED UP big time. I've chosen to ignore viruses i thought were mild for a few months until recently, it has basically taken over my comp entirely. First it shut down my zone alarm, disabled connection to my internet explorer + firefox (although internet is still connected to other programs).|
Whenever i double-click on any icon on my desktop or programs list, a window always pops up and asks me to choose a program to open it with. When i tried going to: programs/acer/acererecovery management --> it asks me to choose program. so i manage to open it and vista asks me for permission to continue (which is normal).. but after i click continue, it crashes! (says :eRecoverUI has stopped working -- close the program).
Now i know the restart + Alt/F10 function has be stated here before, but i've tried it and once it directs me to the Windows 'Edit Boot Options' black screen, I press enter and it just loads windows normally. I can't restart in safe mode either, btw.. it just restarts again and loads windows normally.
I don't know what to do now. I FEEL HOPELESS!
All my personal files are backed up on USBs, so all I need now is to have this comp fixed! -_-'...
By the way, i own an Acer ASPIRE AX1800-E1810B (came with Windows Vista Home Basic Edition pre-installed). Even burning a recovery CD is no hope, seeing as the virus won't let me open the program for it.. :-(
