Helloe, my friend got the new Aspire One ZG5 based. But now thanks to a virus, the MCAfee that's used isn't helping at all, it just detects and deletes the infected and(or) system files !

There are two partitions: one is 149 GB (single active drive, i.e. C) and the other 8GB is for the system drive. At first we wanted to see if we could hook up an external optical drive to start installing Windows over again, but I remembered that if 8GB is kept aside, it must be used to sort of repair Windows or at least install it over again, right?

What do you advice we should do? And is it possible to hook up an external DVD writer to the lap top? Any suggestion on your part, will be of great help to us.

Thanks, waiting for your reply.

Using Acer eRecovery Management, if you still have the original HDD, you can go back factory settings.

You can launch Acer eRecovery Management in a number of ways:
  • By pressing the hotkey <Alt> + <F10> during the boot-up process, or at any time when you are running Microsoft Windows.
  • From the Start menu, go to Start > (All) Programs > Empowering Technology > Acer eRecovery Management.
