Built in Viruses

By gdpowell62 ·
Has any Acer Aspire computer owners out there recently bought a Desktop that comes built in full of Viruses in the built in Game's? I bought this AA M1100 around the end of last year at Wally World(Wal-mart), and after unfortunately after owning it a while, and re-installing the OS with the built in Recovery, that all the games that come with it are loaded with virus's. Now, every time I have to re-install the OS, I have to uninstall all the game's, or anything Acer game related. Is this normal(SNAFU) or Freak computer that I bought?

Content but Confused!

Well I have no idea if the Games are full of Infections on your system

But previously I bought a CAD App and it was infected on the CD. Not sure why I scanned the CD itself, but there where numerous infections that came about because the Software House sent the Code away to have the Install Disc's made and the CD Makers Hardware was infected. These where the Manufactured CD not a Burnt CD so it was a bit nasty for that Software House.

It can happen, though I personally have not heard of it since the DOS/Win 95 Days.

But what makes you think that the Games are actually infected and not just the way that they are supposed to work which slows the system down?

Edited because Davette's Typing Classes cause you to produce errors.

your typing might improve. But I suppose that's about as likely as you returning to Earth for scheduled maintenance.

I turned up for the first 2 minute class and my typing has been shot to hell ever since. What used to look OK is now littered with wrong letter order and just plain mistakes that you seem to accept as OK. ?

I have spent the past 5 years trying to unlearn your 2 minute class so you are so correct that you are unlikely to ever see me in one of your classes again.

After 5 minutes of your Logic I'll not know what a Keyboard is.
