Looks like you've had a bad day with computers! Let's see if we can take some of this on today...
\015\012
\015\012On the first laptop (these ideas may work for both, but I'll address them the way I would my own, and we'll go from there), it looks like there is too much stuff being loaded into memory during system startup. This is not uncommon, particularly in computers which have teenagers as primary users.
\015\012
\015\012I would restart the computer, and after the manufacturer's splash screen and before the Windows splash screen, hit the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring you to a startup menu, which will be a black screen with white writing on it. You will be able to make your choice by moving up and down with the arrow keys on your keyboard. Choose SAFE MODE and hit enter.
\015\012
\015\012If you do not see this screen, then you did not time the hitting of F8 corectly. You'll have to restart and try again.
\015\012
\015\012Once in safe mode, click Start, then RUN. With Run open, type this command MSCONFIG and hit enter.
\015\012
\015\012The next screen that opens is the configuration utility, which allows you to change the things that start with your computer. The last tab on the top should be STARTUP. click this.
\015\012
\015\012Because we are shooting in the dark here, and we are not sure what is stopping the startup process, in the lower right corner of the window is a button that says Disable All. Choose this and click APPLY.
\015\012
\015\012When the mouse comes back, click the next tab, which says SERVICES. Under the first window, you will see a small check box next to a line that says Hide All Microsoft Services. Place a checkmark here.
\015\012
\015\012Again, in the lower right corner, click Disable All. Then click OK. When asked to restart, chose yes. This time the computer should start normally.
\015\012
\015\012Now, this should start your pc, but you still have trouble with no AntiVirus software on your computer. The programs are there, they are just turned off. You'll have to open the program from the program files list, and enable it once again.
\015\012
\015\012I'll comment on the other one after I eat dinner with my family.....
I suspected your OS is corrupted. I suggest to reformat your OS to its defaulty factory settings. If you want to install Microsoft XP OS kindly follow these procedures:
\015\012- insert cd from the dvd rom drive
\015\012- boot up machine
\015\012- press F12 to choose boot device
\015\012- choose boot from cd (it will show instruction to reformat OS and install XP)
\015\012- after reformatting your machine and loaded with Windows XP, you need to check your BIOS and update it.
\015\012- go to Acer site http://acer.com/support/ look for your machine model and download the latest driver for your BIOS
\015\012
\015\012if you want to install anti-virus go to http://www.avg.com/ (freeware). there are lots of anti-virus out there, but this one is a good freeware anti-virus.
