Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Notebook
In case you have not remedied this problem ...
Start off by running Checkdisk to make sure the Hard Drive is okay.
Get a good Antivirus and run it [ AVG free is okay ]. [obviously you must have a good AV installed!]
Download and install Spybot S&D v1.6, and run it
Also find Malwarebytes AntiMalware ... install and run that.
You could also try CCleaner.
And finally get a good Registry cleaner - and run that.[ there are a few good Free ones you may find on CNET, or one of the other Reputable download sites ]
After you have run all of the above you WILL have a much happier computer, and should not have need to load a restore ...
BUT you Will NEED to create a New Restore Point before you start the clean up, AND once the computer has been cleaned up - also create a New Restore Point.
And finally when you have completed all that , run the Defrag - which may take a long time if not run recently. [ defrag should be run on a fairly regular basis ]
Incase you need to get into the Windows boot options, holding the " o " key not the "0" zero, may get you in. Other wise the [F8] key must be pressed at startup - this will bring up the options menu also.
If you Requre to Boot from the CDRom at startup - as the Computer is first powered on start presssing the Right Arrow key until you see the Hilite move across the Icons - here you can select HDD , CDRom, Floppy and even WindowsBoot Menu.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE
MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
You can try to get to a dos command prompt or you can see if the system will allow you to boot in Safe Mode to get to the dos command prompt.
