I've worked on a bunch of Acer's at work and I have never seen that. What are your specs, have you made any changes to the system recently? If not, and there are no important docuements on it, re-format the system from the backup disks it asked you to make as part of the original install process.

Isn't the empowering technology software? If so, try uninstalling it.
