I have a Toshiba Satellite  running windows 7. I got the computer from my father and had to remove a lot of malware and games. I wish i could do a factory reset but i do not have any of the factory disks. It seems like there are a lot of processes running and the physical memory is almost always at 100%. Any help would greatly be appreciated . Thanks in advance.

You can first try this:

Then you can try removing all the junk files on it using CCleaner or BleachBit or something similar. If that doesn't help, I would recommend dual booting this PC with Ubuntu 14.04. I actually published a tutorial on doing that here:

You could then use that as your primary OS.

What is the model of this computer?

 

Most OEM computers now come with a system recovery partition install on it so that you can revert the operating system back to the condition it came out of the box.  Because of this almost all OEM computer come with the installation and drivers discs.

Take a look at the instruction for using the factory default recovery partition here.
