I have a Toshiba Satellite C 660 laptop. I downloaded a tool called securable that shows that virtualization is supported but locked off by bios. But I can not find any Virtualization option in bios. Can you tell me how can I enable virtualization. My bios version is 2.00

Enable virtualization on Toshiba Satellite -


Have you tried these tools?:

The stuff that I read showed that the Intel processors supported virtualization - and that the newer AMD processors support it also.

But virtualization support depends on your specific model.
NOTE: Your CPU may support virtualization, but the option has to be built into the "specific model BIOS".
Other than that, I'd have to suggest installing VMWare in order to see if it works.
