You only need anti-virus if you want to protect the windows users you share files with. You will not, and cannot, get a windows virus (99.999% of all viruses are for windows), and you cannot, and should not, install a Windows anti-virus program on Linux.

For daily use, you will never need anti-virus on Linux.

Note to Linux users. You don't need that **** AV unless you are running an email server that serves windows machines.
That is because of how linux was designed.

How to reformat an asus aspire 1 netbook


A) It's an Acer Aspire 1 - AOA110, or AOA150.
B) Came with Windows XP, or a version of Linux.
Linpus Linux Lite

Means;
1) You can use a version of Linux, and not use Windows again.
Ubuntu Linux for example, is free.

2) You could use a flashdrive with a data recovery program on it, and try to recover the files that have been written over.
Pretty slim chance of that.

3) You could buy a new, genuine copy of Windows XP, and put Windows XP back on it.

Hi My Acer Netbook cant seem to start windows, i have tried going through all the safe modes, and it wont even get to that! It starts to load windows but then everhthing just goes blank!


Your netbook may have been infected by a virus and has stopped your computer from working.
If you can boot up with the Windows installation CD and do a repair then it may get your computer operating again.
If not you need to boot up with the Windows installation CD, then delete the existing partition, create a new partition and format the hard disk (not a quick format), then complete the Windows installation.
then install the Acer netbook device drivers and your programs.

Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: -

My Acer Inspire one Has Linux Lite installed how do I Install Ubuntu from a USB key. I am a total Newbie to Linux


This will not be very easy if you are new to Linux. However, I will provide the instructions for preparing the live USB. I assume you are working on your Aspire with Linux Lite installed.
The same instructions apply for Windows, though will you need UNebootin for Windows. I advise you to carry out the task from a windows PC, as it will be much easier from there.

You will need:

A USB flash drive with 1GB space.

A high speed broad band connection.

Ubuntu live CD ISO file. Download it from here.

UNebootin. Download from here. (Download the version for Linux).


Note: If you already have the Ubuntu Live CD then it will save you the download. Make an ISO image of the CD and put it on the desktop.

Now you have to follow this procedure:

Run the UNebootin.

Connect your USB flash drive to your laptop. Take into account the drive letter.

UNebootin has a self explanatiory GUI. You have the choice to download the ISO from this program or to point to the ISO image you downloaded previously.

Choose your USB drive letter from the drop-down list within UNebootin.

Now it will copy the files to the flash drive.

Next you have to set the BIOS to boot from USB drives.

Insert the newly created flash drive in the port and boot from it. The Ubuntu installation should start.

Linux installation is just like that for Windows.

Windows on the acer aspire one 110-AB


I do not believe this ...the only way is if there is a dual boot system installed so when you boot it should prompt you to choose the op sys ya want to run ...the solution is as fallows...either you install the windows xp ...but I heard about problems with some notebooks that came with Linux cause the HDD is too small to support windows,,,( ex 2G...) and if you install it you will not have room for anything else ..if you dont want to mess with this my solution is .. web msn messenger ..so you will be able to use it without install it ...

Installing anti virus onto aspire one net book


Hi, the Acer Aspire is a Linux operating system based computer. It does not run Microsoft windows in the same way that Apple computers run OSX, not windows. The antivirus programs you mention are for windows computers. On the bright side, running Linux you really DON'T need virus protection Linux is inherently far more secure than windows.
