Answers :

This means that either the computer wasn't new when it was delivered or you have quickly collected some spyware that is responsible for all this nonsense about virus threats.
\015\012
\015\012You haven't said what your operating system is, but it probably has little to do with it anyway.
\015\012
\015\012Did you buy the computer from a reputable retailer? If you did, I would take it back real quick!!!!!!
\015\012
\015\012Failing that, there are some things you can do.
\015\012
\015\012Firstly, regarding 'Virus Threats' whatever they are selling, don't even think about it.
\015\012
\015\012Next, delete all your temporary internet files.
\015\012
\015\012Then, download AdAware >HERE< it's free, trustworthy and worth using. When you have downloaded it, update the definitions file, then do a full system scan. Delete everything it finds.
\015\012
\015\012Next, download >THIS< PurgIE, you will get a free15 day trial. Check all the options except Temp Folders and purge everything it finds. Again this is well respected and trusted software which is perfectly safe. I use it all the time.
\015\012
\015\012There are other good programs out there like Spybot which may also be worth trying.
\015\012
\015\012You could also try using System Restore and restore your computer bacjk to the earliest checkpoint. This will have been produced after the first clean install, Don't bother with any later checkpoints because they are likely to be infected as well.
\015\012
\015\012This kind of invasive problem is can be caused when visiting websites, especially if you have tried to obtain illegal software cracks or keygens. It can be very difficult to get rid of but the directions above should give you a start anyway. If you can identify the trojan or spyware you have, I may be able to point you in the direction of more specific removal instructions.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck there...
You have nothing to fear from those messages, if you currently have no antivirus protection then their is no reason why it would be telling you that you have a virus. what you are probably seeing is adverts for virus protection. you will know they are adverts as they will come up in a cut down Internet Explorer window and you will be able to close it by clicking the X in the top right corner.
\015\012
\015\012to get peace of mind you should download free AdAware from lavasoft usa, once you have scanned your PC it will help you remove advert software/Spyware.
\015\012
\015\012also you should download free avg antivirus. both those software packages are free for home use.
\015\012
\015\012poor acer, none of those problems are cos you have an acer, most users suffer form those types of problems
