So computer was working fine,I downloaded Microsoft Office and didn't like the pop-ups that came with the generator so I canceled install and was going to buy full version. Guess I was too late as the pop-ups wouldn't stop grrrrrr. Ran Malwarebytes to try and remove all the adware and pop-ups. Now my windows won't load. Loads until my login screen,I enter password then it load a black screen with a pop-up "windows script host setting" sorting in lower left corner. Even tried starting in safe mode but same results. Any help for my stupid actions would be greatly appreciated

Hi

The only thing left to do is to reset your machine to factory out of the box settings. All of your data will be lost but it's better than a dead computer.

How might I do this? Don't believe I have a windows disc. Everything was pre-installed when I purchased from store years ago.

Hi

Oh boy...another Acer

Anyway here it goes you can restore it from the WinPE environment. The system starts from the hidden partition on the hard drive. To begin the restoration, press Alt + F10 (PC Tower) or F10 (laptop) to boot the PC when the ACER logo appears. This will start the system from the hidden partition the hard drive and you access its main page. The restoration will be on partition C:. The partition D: (ACERDATA) will not be formatted, and therefore documents will not be deleted

Good luck

P.S. Kind of cold outside isn't it ?

I once spent one entire month, never above -40 (Edmonton)

You must F10 as your laptop is starting up. What about Alt + F10 as your Acer 6930 is starting up

I am afraid that the virus you downloaded damaged your entire system including the recovery partition.

You must the recovery disks, unfortunately, I don't know where you can get them, Acer support is poor but you can try:

Good luck
