Hi guys
I bought an Acer Aspire 6530 last year, I was told they all came with Vista, I didn't have a choice of OS. Ok, I gave it a chance, internet always ran slow on the thing, the sound is crackly and films are choppy. I was persuaded, against my better judgement to get Windows 7 upgrade rather than downgrade (upgrade) to xp and have been using that for the last 6 months... slowly. :huh:
Now, after the latest Windows update it Blue Screens regularly.
I thought I'd use the Acer eRecovery option as it had worked before but when I turn to the option I get a window opening over it, incomplete it reads:Microsoft.net Framework and the rest is blank. I tried downloading the .net Framework file from Microsoft but that didn't work and can't find a way to uninstall it to reinstall it either.
I have back up DVD's but they don't seem to want to do anything and when I explore them I can't find an application to trigger the setup. :huh:
I'm quite happy to do a clean install if there's a way but would prefer to fix the eRecovery if at all possible.
Microsoft's Bloatware is hacking me off big time :huh:
Anyone out there got a clue (apart from xp or binning the thing) what to do? Please

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

Good question, but Yup, I managed to do that, but I think it cocked everything up, cos even the system restore doesn't work now.
Says there are no restore points in te system. eRecovery now shows an "INT.15 error Acer eRestore must terminate" message on start up. I've tried alt + f10, but never get more than Edit options for Windows 7, which is not the menu I need. (bangs head against wall).
