Copy all the content from the CD on to an empty USB Pen-drive, preserving the original folder structure as on the CD.

Now insert the pen-drive into the netbook's USB port and run the installation program that's on it (setup.exe or whatever it's called).

Use a USB Flashdrive or Online Storage.

Flashdrive instructions:
First computer:
Insert Antivirus DVD in the DVD Rom drive
Connect USB flashdrive to the USB port of the computer.
Copy/paste (right click mouse) files from your DVD Rom drive to your USB Flashdrive.
Once the process is complete remove USB Flashdrive.

Second computer (netbook)
Connect USB Flashdrive to the usb port of the netbook.
I would recommend copying the files from the USB to the desktop and running/installing from there.

Online Storage instructions:
Go to: make a free account.
Copy Antivirus DVD files to your desktop
then upload them online to:

Connect Netbook to the internet and download the same files from there.

Hope this helps.

Just as easy to share a cd like you share a folder on a networked drive. Be sure to map it. Some programs don't like being copied to usb or simply shared over network. Mapping usually always works.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Not what you asked I realise but there are some very good free anti-virus programs which you can download and use forever:

Microsoft Security Essentials.

Avast is considered the best by many folk.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
