You can go on the internet and download one that is free or one that you pay for. Just go to antivirus software and make your selection.

Hello,

its simple, if you have the anti-virus on a CD, use another computer that uses CD drive to copy the files from your CD into a flash drive, then load the anti-virus into your netbook via the flash drive by inserting it into your netbook's usb port.

I hope you understand my explanation.

Good luck.

How do I download from disc to Acer Aspire one


Hello,

If you need to load software(such as device drivers) from Optical Media) in a system without an ODD Drive, follow these steps:

1. Log in to another PC in your vicinity that has an Optical Disk Drive.
2. Insert the CD/DVD into the PC and copy its' contents over to that PC.
3. Copy over that content to a USB Storage Device (USB Drive, External HDD, etc).
4. Unplug the External HDD/USB Drive with the content from the PC and plug it in your Laptop/Netbook.
5. Copy over the relevant content over to the netbooks' hard drive.

Alternatively, download the needed drivers from Acer's support website.

I have a Nikon L22 coolpix camera, i have the cd that came with it but i have a netbook and can't use the cd to Download software. where can i get the software for free so i can put it on my acer...


Hi!

Nikon doesn't offer the software for free download.
But there are many ways to get your software installed from disk. I also have a netbook without optical drive:
1.The simplest way is to ask a friend to copy all CD content on a memory stick, then you can install the software from this stick.

2. You can also use a USB external CD/DVD, and connect it to your netbook.

3. Other way is more complicated but also works: if you have another computer with CD/DVD, you can share this drive via network and map it on your netbook. Then you can use the CD/DVD drive as connected directly to your netbook.


Hope it helped.

I love my netbook! I tried to download Microsoft security essentials(free antivirus download.) To do so, I has to uninstall Trend Micro that came with my netbook(bought it 2 weeks ago!) i was unsuccessful...


Assuming that the version of Trend Micro that was pre-installed was the free trial version, you may be better off now and in the long-term by installing a free antivirus program that won't expire.
I usually recommend Avast as a solution for anyone who doesn't need or want to invest in higher performance antivirus and Internet security.
However, if you really want to get that Trend Micro installation back, if you have a CD/DVD for restoring your netbook back to the factory installation, you should be able to use that to revert your netbook to that fresh state (with Trend Micro installed).
I hope this information helps!

How do i install internet ti sylvania mini note book


Hi there,

There are three basic solutions for installing software on a netbook without an optical drive:

1. Share the Disc Over a Network

Required: A network, and a PC with an optical drive
This solution essentially shares the optical drive in one PC over a network to your Netbook. For most this is the easiest method because most users these days have a network readily available, and assuming there's a network there's likely a PC with an optical drive connected to it.
First you need to load the CD/DVD into the optical drive in the PC. Now go to My Computer and right click on the drive with the loaded media, click properties, navigate to the Sharing tab (note if you haven't done this before it may give you a warning that you shouldn't do this unless you know what you're doing, click the message to continue). Check the Share this folder on the network box, give it a name of your choice and hit OK.
From this point forward any computer on your network will be able to access the shared drive. If this is a problem be sure to follow the steps above and uncheck Share this folder on the network, to take it off.
Now, make sure your Netbook is connected to the network (this works wirelessly or through ethernet wired connection). Access My Network Places, and click Add A Network Place, use the wizard to add the optical drive you selected to share.
Now that it is shared you should be able to access it from My Network Places at any time (when your Netbook is connected to the network), and it should automatically refresh if you switch the CD, if it doesn't do a right-click, and hit refresh and the files should update. If you are trying to install software and are used to auto-run, double click the Setup.exe file or similar to begin installation.

2. Use an External Optical Drive (can be a bootable disc)
Required: External optical drive
External optical drives are the easiest way to use CD/DVD media and install software to your Netbook. It is however the most expensive option.
External drives are very simple; just plug it into an available USB port. Your Netbook will automatically detect the drive and simply add it to My Computer just like a built in drive. Some drives will even run power through the USB, while this makes them more mobile it eats up your Netbook's battery faster, if that is a problem other external drives do require a power outlet for use but should not drain your battery.

3. Create an Image (not bootable)
Required: Image making software (like Alcohol 120% or VirtualDrive), image emulation software (Alcohol 120% includes one, Dameon Tools is another, or Power Iso), access to a computer with an optical drive, and a method to transfer a large file from that computer to your Tablet PC.
You will need to use your particular software User-Guide for most of this process. What you do essentially is use software to create an exact copy of the CD in the form of a file (normally a .iso) that has to be read by an optical drive emulator which then can access the CD as if it were being read by a real optical drive. The biggest disadvantage to this method is that CDs can run around 700mbs, DVDs around 4gbs... transferring files of that size, even over fast networks, can be tedious. A benefit however is you can carry important CDs (as files) with you as you go, so for example if you need to install Microsoft Word content to use some feature while your in a meeting, you can do so without having the physical CD with you... This however of course requires heavy disk space since the CD file tends to be around 700mbs.

Hope this helps.

Why should one give your netbooks a preference over a Dell netbook


They shouldn't. All the netbooks are great if your doing stuff in MS Office and using it for the internet but if you need a dvd drive to install software then thats where the issue usually is or if you need to try and fix a faulty system you have no way of installing software from a cd without the drive.

My suggestion is there shouldn't be a preference.

Acer Aspire One Netbook has trojan hose viruses.


First of all, how do u know it has a trojan? Which antivirus are u using? Do u know whats the name of the trojan?
Most trojans can be removed easily with any antivirus, some are worst but our AV friends work hard on it and develop utilities to remove them, I dont think u need to reinstall windows xp, but in the case u would, u do need the cd to do it.
