Check your Windows OS version
Microsoft stops updating Windows XP and Vista versions in the early years. Even all AceThinker tools do not apply to those two versions out of security concerns. In case your Windows OS is still an XP or Vista, upgrading the latest Windows version is strongly recommended. Otherwise, you won't be able to use any AceThinker tools.
Make sure that your IE browser is updated
AceThinker tools are only applicable to the latest version of Internet Explorer, which is the IE9. That is why upgrading your Windows OS to the newest releases like 7, 8, or 10 is highly recommended because of older versions like XP and Vista won't be able to run IE9 and the AceThinker tools.
