Try uninstalling it with this link text FREE version. Follow these instructions exactly.

During the un-install process you may be asked if you want to re-start your computer, DO NOT re-start at this point, let Revo continue. You will eventually get the option to Select All and to Delete - DO SO. You may be given the same options a second time, again DO SO, do not be picky, just accept all that Revo chooses. After clicking on Finish, re-start your computer.

My understanding is the Android is provided for this netbook as a dual boot so that if you just want to browse on the net or e-mail Android gives you a quick start. I would be wary of removing it.

Woolwell - Hi, having been downloaded by user, I assume therefore that it is un-installable.

Nontek - I think it was pre-installed - not sure what was meant by "downloaded from user guide". The user guide is normally on the system.

Which model Acer Aspire One?

Woolwell Reckon you are right, but having read that review I can understand why the OP wants to get rid of the Android OS.
