Re: How to restore a Toshiba Satellite?
depending on what viral software you use it can lag, but it shouldn't cause lag when there was none to begin with. I would check to see what resources are being consumed. Sounds like a cpu resource is being consumed by something, find the thread process and terminate it to see if that will do better. Also the restore cd, toshiba laptops does not come with restore cds, they have a partition seperated on the laptop for restoring specifically. If you want to buy the best in antivirus protection stick with either bitdefender 08+ or NOD32, or kaspersky. I use nod32 personally and have had no problem, uses one of the fewest resources while running and best virus definition data base updates on a daily basis.
