Re: How to restore a Toshiba Satellite?

I use Avast Home Edition, also free. It works well.

Worst case scenario, download a new copy of Vista through or which are torrent sites. You'll need a torrent program like BitTorrent or Vuze though. If you download .ISO files they're ready to burn so you can burn a operating system disc which is exactly what you're looking for. You may be able to find legal options there such as the retail disc that requires your product key.. and of course illegal option as well. haha

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.

Re: How to restore a Toshiba Satellite?

There are alot of great comments on this. Just throwing my suggestions in but not shooting any others out. The first thing I would do is run Memtest to verify its not a memory issue, Then run MHDD to make sure that your Hard drive is not slowly going out which would cause that type of slowness.

A restore if your ok with losing the data and the time is the best defrag\disk clean on the market :IMO . The legal way to restore if you cant find the builtin restore option. (usually found in start>accesories>system tools>toshiba recovery) is to contact the manufacture and order the discs. The shady way and the way I most prefer is to aquire an oem version of windows through bit torrent or use a dell recovery disc. I haven't tried the vista ones but that what Ive used for years.

I agree that Norton blows
