Preferred Solution: Amazon assistant - Acer 704 desktop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This program called Program Files (x86)\Amazon\Amazon Assistant\aa.hta keeps popping up and I can't uninstall it and I tried on programs and features, but I never even downloaded Amazon Assistant (I think) because there is no uninstall option. How do I get rid of it?

For a while i've noticed that i had a program installed (amazon assistant), but i couldn't seem to remove it. I didn't notice any real problems, but since today something keeps popping up called amazon assistant/aa.hta
I tried to use IObit uninstaller to delete the program and it says it has deleted it but the file still keeps popping up every few seconds. Can anyone help me?

Hi,

I have looked through a few forums on removing the Amazon Assistant virus but I still have not removed it from my machine. I'm continuously getting the blank, white pop-up. When I went to remove the program, the "uninstall" option is greyed out and I am unable to get into the actual file to delete it because it keeps saying that the file is open. I haven't been able to close the pop-up for long enough to remove the file. As I type this, the pop-up is coming up every 10-15 seconds. I just need this gone, it's getting to be too much and my machine is slowing down exponentially.

Here are the specifications of my machine.

So first of all, English is not my main language so, sorry for my bad england ok?

I will be fast and right to the point but just to make things clear this is not a final fix for fully deleting the ''virus'' but to get rid of that pop up window all the time that seems to be strong enough to resist some of the best anti-viruses out there so here is the ****ing deal:

1: Press windows key + R and write ''services.msc''
2: Find the Amazon Assistant instance and right click it and go to proprieties(i think)
3: if you did it right you will notice that in one of the boxes it is set to ''automatic'', just change it to ''disabled'' and after it stop the service.
4: save clicking on the Ok button and then go to the task manager
5: find the Amazon Assistant exe and just finish it if possible.

Now you should notice that the annoying windows has gone and from there you can get time to find a tutorial to help you get rid of the Amazon Assistant files.

That's it, leave a comment if I helped you and if not also leave a comment and i will try to help if possible.

I'm getting blank white boxes constantly.

I didn't download it intentionally.

I have read the other 8 threads on it here.

I'm running Windows 10.

When I tried to uninstall the program I found both modify and uninstall options were shaded grey and didn't work.

I saw that the other solutions involved downloading this link:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/

I was going to do that and run it and put the report in this message but windows defender wasn't happy about it.

I'm poised to run it and get the report if that is the next step and very thankful that people take their time to help out in this way.

(i see that the sysinfo says windows defender is disabled. it says it's protecting me so i dunno what is going on there)

I have just been helping a friend remotely on a laptop - windows 10 remove amazon assistant
which keeps popping up on the screen

usually adwarecleaner followed by malwarebytes gets rid of these

Adwarecleaner - listed it as an optional PUP and i made sure it was checked - also checked other amazon items WOW - etc
and removed and rebooted

Still came up

ran adwarecleaner again
this time it had removed other items - except amazon button1 (which is amazon assistant)
so removed it again and rebooted

still came up

ran malwarebytes

listed as a threat - quarantined
rebooted

still there

how do we get of this think
ALL google searches appear to indicate that Malwarebytes & Adwarecleaner - should remove

I just registered, so sorry if i'm posting in the wrong place.

I just re-installed my windows 7 and i am unable to log back in my amazon EC2 server. I know there's nothing wrong with the server itself because it's accessible trough other PC's.
My firewall is disabled, i don't have an anti-virus program. I am 100% sure that the login details are correct.
When i type(or copy) them in i get a "Your credentials did not work. The logon attempt failed."
This always happens when i reinstall windows or if i try and connect to a new server(or if i change it's password). But after a few attempts it somehow fixes itself (i have no idea what the problem is or how it resolves itself)


As i said i've disabled the firewall (from services) and made sure that all the remote access services are running and that i've made sure that the remote desktop connection setting is "Automatically detect RD Gateway server settings"

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to come to for this. For the last few days, I have not been able to access amazon.co.uk or amazon.com. My housemate (who I'm on the same wireless network as) can access it on his computer, but when I try on mine, I just get redirected to my Sony Vaio google search page saying it can't find it. I've done three scans for viruses etc and got nothing. I've reinstalled IE7 and all that's changed now is that when I try and access amazon, it now comes up as Cannot display page, so it's not even redirecting me to the Sony Vaio google seach page anymore.

I know amazon isn't down as my housemate can get it. Can anyone suggest what's wrong here? To me it's very bizarre and has never happened before.

Tim.

Neither of which are remotely accurate. How do I change them? I have tried removing and reloading an updated version (of each) with no joy.
Any ideas?

> As it says in the title SN shows as 000000 and part number as Ver. 1.

What serial number and part number (model number???) do you mean exactly?
Do you mean the notebook?s serial and model number?

These details are part of the DMI string.
Usually after the mainboard exchange such DMI string needs to be updated using correct data.
In case the DMI will not be updated, the data like serial number and others will not be shown correctly.

To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.

Question: Acer Desktop

The computer was unplugged for four months. I tried to start it, but it will turn on, and the monitors (2) will not show anything other than a note about power saving mode. How do I make them work? I unplugged everything and replugged it all in, tried a different power source for the computer, but nothing helps. Help!

It is an Acer 1100-E1203A, and with Windows 7. Purchased in Canada.

Question: HP vs Acer Desktop

Seems I am the second person with this question. The thread was closed because no one answered. Figured I'd give it another shot. I have always had my computers built from scratch & my guru is out of business. HP once had very good products.I've had bad luck with them over the last few years but know nothing about Acer. HP's last good printer was the
855C. I did buy a cheap Acer Laptop & getting along with it OK ~ don't know if any of my problems are from going from XP to Windows 7 or the Acer. I haven't learned how to use it yet. I read some place that Acer Laptops & their Desktops are not made by the same people????

Question: Acer desktop

I bought an ACER desktop in 2007, (AM5630-U5202A). This thing has been dropped on concrete,  (when I hired some bozo's to help me move), has been full of dust, totally hacked, (and restored), beat on, (to make a noise go away), and still runs everyday with no problems., -I'm on it right now. This ACER is a battleaxe.

hi. hope some one can help my little brother.
acer desktop had probs so got local tech to 'fix' it. he added a new hard drive (with a few annoying and unnecessary programs) and told them to 'make sure they didnt try to update windows' (the guy dint even disable auto updates). anyhow what my bro now has is a pc without full functionality of OS as GAN has obviously recognised discrepancy.
the xp disc that they have authourised key for (bundled with acer) will not reformat hard drives.
i imagine options to be:
- ignore/remove new hard drive and make old drive primary again then reformat with original disc
- purchase new xp disc - is this possible if not some kind of builder of hardware and if so where from and approx cost (vista is more readily available but dont think his system can stand the strain)
any sugestions appreciated (i have already mentioned to him that the $400 he has shelled out to this guy plus the $200 odd he is likely up for to get new xp would actually purchase a new pc these days).
 

Answer:xp help for acer desktop

What kind of recovery disk do you have that doesn't format the drive and actually recover the operating system? That would be the first place I'd start. Even if the hard drive was replaced, the recovery disks should work.

Answer:Desktop Replacement Acer or HP

Part of a review from an Amazon customer regarding sound on the HP model -
If listening to music through the laptop's speakers is your only option then you might as well cut off your ears. I'm sure it will sound better played through an external sound system - it couldn't fail to - but for me this isn't an option. The sound on my previous laptop wasn't exactly great, so my expectations were not too high, but this machine managed to limbo beneath the bar.

We have an Acer that has been giving us problems since we got it a few months ago. Unfortunately, we didn't know because my teenage daughter didn't say anything until recently. We have sent it back to the company but they sent it back and said they saw nothing wrong. I believe it is the operating systems because when the computer crashes, it says that Windows has found something wrong and shuts down. I went to Acer support and they told me to press ALT and F10 to reinstall operating system but nothing happens. Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Acer desktop problems

Hello and welcome to TSG.

Maybe the Function 10 key alone would be enough to kickstart that process but you may well lose all the personal files you have on there.

Alternatively, you could start the system and look in Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer for any red marks beside a log which might tell you what causes the shutdowns. Post some details back here and someone will be able to help. Malware may be causing the problems.

This is the first and last time I will ever buy an Acer product. I picked up this Acer desktop at my local Walmart and had no idea just how small the CPU was. It has a notebook type Intel 1.6 CPU that will not even allow me to stream live videos. The worse part of all is that I cannot even upgrade it. It seems to be fused to the motherboard. Otherwise my brother in law could pop in a better CPU plus addition RAM sticks. It is terribly slow also, and sometimes freezes up. I am furious that I cant stream live video, but more upset about the non upgradable motherboard.

Computer is 5 or 6 years old and has work perfectly in the spare bedroom.I have had to bring it downstairs and the fans have started to be very very loud it is almost unbearable. can you help ?
R.Parsons (dickpar)

Answer:Acer desktop is very noisy

moving it may have cause some cables to catch on the fans causing the noise
and after 5 yrs its probably ready for a "blow out"
unplug from mains take off the side (usually 4 screws on rear and slide the panel back) - use a small paint brush to lightly brush off the dust and blow out with a hair dryer on cool setting or use a vacumm cleaner hose but don't let the nozzle touch the boards - the fan blades might also want "scrapping" carefully in ditched.
check the cables are clear of all fans and power back on to see if there is improvement. power off and refit cover.

hello,
i have been working on a system for a friend of mine and the computer will not post. i get no sound, no beep codes and no video feed from the system. all the fans spin up, all the case lighting comes on and both the Hard disk and DVD Drive work (the DVD Drive even opens and closes).
i have tried swapping the Power Supply, Video card, and Hard disk for known good components to no avail. i do not have a spare CPU or any spare RAM to try this with.
the system has 2 RAM modules however just using one or the other in any combination of slots does not fix the problem. it seems odd to me that both sticks would die at the same time unless the motherboard was the cause. when i remove both sticks i do get the contentious beep error telling me there is no RAM present.
the only components left i can think of is the RAM the CPU and the motherboard. i would just go buy a stick of ram to through in but its not my system to i don't want to go throwing my friends money at a maybe solution.
any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

oh yes i forgot to mention i have already tried resetting the CMOS as well.
 

Answer:Acer desktop does not POST

The continuous beeps tell me that the CPU and motherboard are okay, and you are sure that you swapped memory modules always keeping the memory socket nearest the CPU occupied?

Answer:restore CD's from an ACER desktop?

My wife had an Acer and what you are looking for was right on the desktop, but it should also be on the start menu. From memory I believe it was called something like eData Security, and with it you could make backup images of the OS drive and also create the bootable recovery CDs you would need in the event the system wouldn't boot.

Answer:I am new and my acer desktop is out of warranty. ...

I assume you are wishing to upgrade your OS. As far as I am aware there are no free upgrade paths available.You should also bear in mind that, should you choose to purchase a new OS, there may not be drivers available for your hardware. This would need further investigation. You can check Windows 7 compatibility here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/5/D/95D3883A-00A2-4A8A-A979-48D5AB9B1112/Windows7UpgradeAdv... I am led to believe that upgrading from Vista to Windows 8 should not be a problem (but the driver issue could well be so would need checking just as for Windows 7). The only reason I can imagine for not being able to install an AV app is that you have an infection that is preventing it. I would suggest you contact the AV company to seek assistance as they may well have a 'cleaner' that, once run,  will allow you to install.

Good evening  via google I found your faqs about my issue. It?s stating that it is indeed possible to connect a lcd display to a desktop computer. I was wondering if there is someone on this forum who can help me, point me in the right direction or something.My Situation:the Acer Travelmate 291LMi was always a good laptop to have. At one point though a problem occurred. The display started to flicker. I found out that this was a common problem with the laptop. Somewhere on the circuit board the connection to the display has a loose contact. So, when I warmed up the laptop, I could actually use it for quiet another while. When it completly broke down (with bluescreens and all), I bought a desktop PC together with a LG L227WT.

My half a year old acer Predator G3-605 wouldn't boot. When I turn it on, it shows the Acer explore beyond limitsTM logo on the screen for 2 minutes. Below the logo are 5 white dots that spins around to form a circle which I assume it means that it's loading. There's also "Press Del to enter setup"* at the bottom which appears for only 3 seconds. After the 2 minutes, it shows a blue screen that says "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you" for 2 seconds. Then, the screen turns black and shows no sign of changing. I left it for like an hour but it's still black.
To add on, of the 3 white lights around the On button, only 1 is lit, which is the one on the bottom left of the triangle. Plus, its not even consistent. It keeps blinking. After some time when the screen is black, the light disappears.
I restarted numerous times but it's still the same. I tried unplugging the monitor, power cord and all USB devices and hold the On button for half a minute. When I reconnected the power cord, it's still the same problem.
I'm now out of ideas. Any suggestions?
Edit: So today I tried turning it on and it turned out a little different. The screen displays the Acer explore beyond limitsTM logo for 5 seconds and then it changes to a black screen with the words: "Reboot and select proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected device and ... Read more

how do i update me network adapter for my acer desktop? i cant access the internet at all.

Answer:acer desktop network adapter

Hi jimmybwaii, welcome to 7F!

Did you uninstall the driver for it before you had another on your desktop?

What you could try is a System Restore to a time before you lost your internet access, don't forget to click on the check box that says "Show other Restore Points", Option One step #8 Note.

Hi

Im not very good with computers so please be patient with me.

I have an Acer Desktop PC

It has 2 drives

Acer (C) has 71% free space
Acer (D) has 99% free space.

I have an ipod mini, & want to install itunes & start downloading music.

Once installed & I download from itunes, which drive do I download to please?

Does the installation process automatically select the drive, i.e. C drive, or do I have to select a drive.

Thanks in advance

I have an Acer Aspire desktop (Windows Vista) that was purchased brand new some years back. It has rather curious partitions: ACER (C: ) (System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) 50GBDATA (D: ) (Primary Partition) 17GB Is there any reason for the large D: partition? Could it be merged into the main C: drive without any harm? I am looking to upgrade to Windows 7.

Answer:Acer Aspire Desktop - Partitions

Hello aubergine, Under Windows Vista, you have exactly 3 partitions: 0- PQSERVICE - The hidden partition which permit to recover your system like out factory.1- C:ACER2- D:ACER DATA Firt, don't forget to make your erecovery media (factory defaults)I advise you to install windows 7 on C (partition 1). If you have any problem, you'll be able to recover your system from PQSERVICE. If you merge C and D, I'm not sure you'll be able to recover it (partitions changed). Look this video (from 2:39): Destination partition 1 (C)

I need help deciding between two desktops: HP A6000n or the Acer MTA500A.

Both are the same price ate BestBuy ($529).
They both have and AMD X2 52 dual core processor 2.2ghz.

The Acer has 2 GB memory, 320 gb hard drive (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...ategoryId=pcmcat103700050049&id=1171671628685)
The Hp has 1 gb memory, 250 gb hard drive (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...ategoryId=pcmcat103700050049&id=1173577986861)

the bottom line is the Acer is a better deal on paper. But i am weary about buying an Acer as I dont know much about their quality and other factors such as support, overheating etc.

I dont want something that gives me trouble all the time, which is what I worry will happen with the Acer. However I dont really know anything about HP vs Acer, but the average un-informed person would assume HP is better.

If anyone has any suggestions on getting a HP vs Acer please let me know.

Thanks
 

Answer:Need Help: HP A6000n vs Acer MTA500A Desktop

I would suggest building your own computer before purchasing any pre-built PC.
But between the two, I would go with the Acer, Simply because even if it does break down you can sell whatever still works and probably make your money back. Or you could purchase the extended warranty.

Will my ACER Aspire be good enough for me to work from home as an independent contractor? I was hoping to use dual monitors with it too but it has only one VGA. Could I use the HDMI to set up the second monitor if I purchase the right adapter? Thank you!
