I have an Acer Aspire 52xx that the OS has crashed do the system being infected with a number of viruses.
Following the directions from Acer to perform a system restore for hidden partition, I hit Alt + F10 as the system booted, but then it just seems to hang there with a screen "This may take a moment ..." and never does show the menu of recovery options that the directions illustrate.
I waited 45 minutes, how long is too long.
Has anyone else encountered this problem with Acer and recovered.
I know if you search, you find a lot of others with this issue.
