My desk top assist dose not show any programs when you go to the ALL PROGRAMS tab. They where there one day and gone the next. This did not happen until I updated Disk Top Assist at the Toshiba web site.

Thanks

Thank you.

  when I go to do a restore it only shows one restore point. And that was 4 months ago. I just start having the problem  two days ago.

Thanks for your help
