Is the acer software necessary

\015 Hi, I was wondering if I reformat my computer if it would make a difference if I do not have the acer software itself or is the acer software necessary...and if it is necessary anyone know of a place I can buy them because my computer did't come with any??\015

Answers :

Hi there.
You don't really need the Acer software installed when you reformat the PC as long as you have all the drivers installed, Acer software is just an optional extra.
