the first thing to try is system restore...go back at least 1 and a half months ago...be sure your past when the problem started

A quick google search reveals that MACE is Managed Access to Catalyst Evironment, so it has to do with your ATI drivers accessing the internet. Check any and all firewall configurations on your computer, including the Windows firewall, and make sure that MACE, or the ACE service, has permission to access the internet.

fought with my own ATI 9600 ALL IN WONDER video card drivers about 3 years ago...can't remember exactly but I think the solution was I wasn't getting the old drivers uninstalled properly before reinstalling them...heres the link to ATI...look in the troubleshooting or download section for how to uninstall the drivers the right way...there may even be a uninstaller...
