We purchased a new computer today which is running Windows Vista Home Permium and when we turn it on to load it its coming up with an error saying


Program Operation error. Please restart the computer and try again.

I rung Acer and the guy said to factory restore it which I did.

Do you have any of these programs installed?

Uninstall them if you can.

Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

If you purchased it from a retailer, take it back.

Completely agree with rscole86... if its new, take it back. It should work straight out of the box. Is it possible the PC was a display model?
