Turn your computer on press F8 until the advanced boot menu appears select repair your computer select the keyboard layout press next log on to a user account with admin rights not a standard account click on toshiba hdd recovery and follow onscreen instructions to restore to factory default settings.
This will destroy any data on the hard drive so backup any important files before doing this.
After recovery has been done and you boot back into windows insert a blank dvd into your cd/dvd drive and click on recovery disc creator on desktop or under start>programs recovery disc creator and select create recovery discs and click create you may need more than one disc. If your hard drive ever fails these will be your only means of recovery of your os and programs. Toshiba will charge you if you have to order a set of recovery discs from them.
Hope this helps.
