Try the retailer where you purchased it.
If it is a dodgy copy, be wary of sites that promise hacks or keys - You'll probably end up with a virus, and worse problems!

Everytime i boot up i get an error message stating that there was a boot failure and it loads in safe mode then it prompts me to buy some software to repair my netbook


Sounds like a combination of 2 things.
  1. Machine has contracted a virus.... On startup, the machine would never prompt you to buy anything unless it's infected with a virus or malware.
  2. Corrupted bootlog....Any boot failure is usually due to a corrupted bootlog. This can be for a variety of reasons ie improper shutdown, bad battery, or what I think is the case here is a virus or malware.
If possible, boot directly into safe mode (tapping F5 key while booting). From there you can try different options ie Last known good configuration, run memory test, system restore. If you can't run your anti-virus package in safe mode, you may need to attempt a system restore, preferably to a point just prior to where you picked up the virus.

I beleive that this is a virus. some Viruses corrupt the device settings on a mouse or keyboard. you will to try to boot the computer in safe mode. to this when you tun the computer on press the F8 btton on the keyboard. then select safe mode with networking and hit enter. when the computer boots up you will need to run a virus scan. another option is to take the hard drive out of the computer and put it in another computer and run a virus scan on it. Viruses that usually cause this type of problems are redirect viruses found when searching on google.

Does telus have a free virus protection that I can scan for virus etc.


I do not know about telus or what telus is but yes there is a free Antivirus as well as spyware scanners. Spyware is worse than a virus.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.


Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

Sony Vaio VGC-RC024 will not boot up


Try when system is booting up, press F8 to come into boot choices.
Select last known good configuration.
select OS
if it still hangs try F8 again on boot and go into safe mode,

If neither way works the master boot record may be corrupt or viruses may be preventing boot up.

Internet connection is corrupt


Which website? Sounds like you may either have a virus or your LSP is corrupt (which could also be caused by a virus). Try running Spybot-S&D (http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Spybot_Search_and_Destroy/1043809773/1), updating it after installing, running a scan, and deleting anything it finds. Hopefully that helps.
