Question about Sylvania G-Netbook

1 Answer

Product: Sylvania Netbook (SyNet7WID). OS: Windows CE. Question: can this system run McAfee? I'm downloading it now (or so I think; the progress bar is running, but it's taking a very long time). However, can the Netbook/CE run it? Thanks, Tim Smith

Hello, from what I understand, the netbook doesn't use an Intel-standard processor, so only code specifically for that chip will run, ie, no downloadable plug-ins,java, flash etc. CE itself is based on windows 98. I found a site giving useful overviews on these netbooks, I think they're worth visiting: tp://bestgadgetnow.co.uk/gadget-news/99-cvs-sylvania-netbook-computer-review/
just don't try to view it on your netbook! regards, nicam49

    Nicam49 is right, Win CE is not binary compatible with Intel-based windows.
    I have now mucked around in the registry enough to be fairly confident that it does include a native firewall. It doesn't need anti-virus the way regular windows does because you have to write the virus to the hardware and os platform. Like Linux, Win CE is much less popular than Windows.

When the computer turns on it says.... " Application explorer.exe encountered a serious error and must shut down. Just purchased the computer and it will no go pass this error message


"Application explorer.exe encountered a serious error and must shut down"means sometime in the past, someone must have installed the OS incorrectly or has deleted something vital, which is why this error is occurring. The only way to bypass this is to reinstall windows OS using the CD that was provided for you, and this error will disappear.

I can't download Adobe Flash for my Sylvania & inch mini-Nebook


That is because your netbook runs Windows CE, that is totally different from all other Windows Os's - they have absolutely nothing in common, just the name. Almost no program made for other Windowses will work in CE , so no Flash either.

Is there a version of flash or flash lite that can be downloaded to the Windows CE OS?


NO! what is loaded on the netbook with CE is what you are stuck with unless you are willing to re-flash the operating system.

I have a sylvania notebook i want to change os how do i do that i have no cd rom do i use a usb flash windows ce is harable.


To the best of my knowledge, you cannot change the OS on that notebook as it is an embeded system. The Gsystem is burned into a chip on the mother board and the only way at present is to reprogram a like chip and solder it in place after de-soldering the old chip. Then you would have to buy another embeded system and learn to program an EEprom chip.
