It is installed and enabled under the device manager. I uninstalled it and restarted my computer and it reinstalled it normally, but the problem remained.
I never heard of the event manager until reading this forum today, but there are a ton of errors listed for Service Control Manager and SidebySide. There is an occasional warning for Windows Defender.
I had trouble a while back with the acer desktop management software locking up my dvd but I am not receiving those error messages. I am able to explore the drive but it shows up blank.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your time!
PS. I just noticed that my USB external drive (a new 320gb My Book) cannot be accessed either.
It could be the Acer elock software again. Will I be able to uninstall it without causing more system problems?
