The virus warning WAS the virus. If you clicked anything on that warning a virus came in thrugh it. Turn your computer off. Sart it up and hit the F8 key repeatedly right as it's starting. A screen with choices will appear. Scroll up using the arrow keys and make Safe Mode highlighted and hit enter.

Wait and be patient while Safe Mode gets you to your desktop. Don't worry that all the icons look big and screen quality not very good. That's normal safe mode.

Open a browser and download "Malwarebytes Free Edition" malware killer and run it. It will guide you through deleting the viruses.

The restart your computer normally and you should be ok.

Can I use my verizon internet usb air card on my new Sylvania netbook or can I only use it with Wi-Fi

I would assume you can. Your netbook relies on it's WIFI card, but so does a regular laptop. The Verizon card is just another connection--wireless--through your cell account. Should not be machine specific.

My Sylvania 7" netbook shows

Do you have a password on your network, that's what it looks like it wants. But you can also have some spyware. I would run your virus program and any anti-spyware programs you have. You can also go on to internet explorer and go to tools then internet options then click on the advanced tab and click on reset. If you can try to install Malwarebytes it is a free program that removes spyware. Please let me know if this helped, thanks for using FixYa

I have a sylvania laptop, and it is a netbook. and it seems it wont let me play games listen to music or watch movies even download things. can you help me find out how i can download adobe flash. thanks.

If this is the Sylvania SYNET07526, then you are pretty much restricted to what the software on the machine can do. You can play some of the games embedded in the machine, but no internet as that requires more memory than you have in your machine.

Merry Christmas! I'm trying to connect to the internet on my Sylvania netbook and it keep saying "the page cannot be displayed" I don't understand why I'm not connected to the internet if my...

Hi there and Merry Christmas,

Are you connecting to a router? Yes, if it is wireless, you'll need to make sure that the router has internet connectivity. if other computers connected to the same router can connect with the internet then there's something wrong with your computer's network configuration. You can copy the network setting from a working computer connected to the same router such as the gateway IP address and proxy settings and use the same settings on your computer..

use the console to check for internet connectivity. Sometimes, virus may infiltrate browser internet connection so better check using RUN>CMD and type "ping"

Let me know if this helps.. I do hope it does.

The Sylvania 7" G-Netbook PC uses Windows CE. The only way to install SOFTWARE (not spyware) on it, is downloading only software for Windows CE.

You can find software in internet using google: "windows ce download shareware"

Antivirus suddenly stopped Working

Download Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, Ad-aware and Spybot, and run them all (one after another, not all at the same time) to see if you're not infected by some spyware.

Also run some anti-virus, like Avira - or even the online Trendmicro housecall ( to check for viruses.

And do that if possible disconnected from the internet.

If nothing is picked up by those programs, then you can try a system restore to a point where everything worked. Be sure to backup your data first, since you can loose some data with System Restore.
