Is there a way to restore boot files without a cd or hard drive because windows 8 came pre installed
- I am using an acer predator ag3
- not too experienced in computer software...
Is there a way I could just reset this to factory settings to correct the boot files or what?
Please help soon thanks!

eRecovery Management

Most Acer desktops, as well as notebooks, include eRecovery Management, a program that allows users to restore to factory settings. Users can access the program by clicking Start > All Programs > Acer > Acer eRecovery Management. From the menu on the side panel, click Restore and then choose Complete Restore System to Factory Defaults. Follow the confirmation screens until the process begins.

Too late... Unfortunately I have already spent the 200 dollars at my local best buy to have the geek squad reinstall windows and wipe the computer, abut at least I get free virus protection with it... Because I didn't have any before so that might be the reason behind the files getting corrupted!
Thanks for the help anyways, I really appreciate it!

I feel bad. That's a total rip off for something so simple. If you had waited, I'm sure a Geek would've been able to do this for you...free of charge!

If folks want something doing on their computer instantly  (without waiting too long) especially over a weekend then they have to get used to the idea of paying for it....
