First, make sure you have a backup of your important music,
videos, email, files, etc. Then, find out what software you have
and use on your computer. Make sure you have some way of
re-installing that software after you "redo" your computer. For
example, you would want to have a backup of your word
documents and a dvd with Microsoft Office if you use MS
Office. A good backup medium is a flash drive, but you can
also burn your files to a dvd. Make sure you have a copy of
Windows! You will need a licensed copy of windows. You
may be able to request discs from Acer, or you may already
have one. Do NOT use a pirated version of Windows. Insert
the disc in your dvd drive and restart. When it starts back up
again, it will most likely ask to boot from disc. Do this. Then
follow the instructions on screen to install windows. Do a
clean install. As soon as you install, install updates and
download Microsoft Security Essentials or another
security software. Then, restore your files and install your
software programs.
