    If this is a ACER Pre-installed with Windows 8, have you checked the ACER Windows 8.1 update.

    Peep here, assuming you have the latest Launch Manager driver from Acer for 8.1, I would uninstall it, run CCleaner (twice), re-install and reboot. See if it works.

    You should have version 7.0.10 and it is actually listed in the Application section of downloads for your model.

    I have been doing it several times, removed it, ran ccleaner(cleaned both junk and registry) restarted pc, and re-installed again, and still, when i press the WiFi button it does not display options.

    In 8 when I press it the screen pops a notification saying Airplane Mode On or Off. I am in desktop mode. Maybe the app is glitched for 8.1.
