Under the terms of the agreement, Acer will preload a co-branded Yahoo! and Acer toolbar and start page on Acer PCs shipped worldwide. Additionally, with the upcoming launch of Microsoft's (MSFT - Get Report) Internet Explorer 7, Acer will also set Yahoo! as the default search engine for IE7 on all of its computers.
Acer will begin shipment of its PCs featuring the co-branded toolbar and co-branded start page on Oct. 1 in Asia Pacific, Europe, North America and South America.
