When I double tap the touchpad it will constantly minimize my screen. This is so frustrating and really slows me down on my work. This happens wherever my cursor happens to be on the screen-it is not near the minimize button. Please help!
Double check your settings for the touch pad. It could be set to do that under one of the settings. Or something internally could have gotten jogged or internally moved. If that is the case there isn't much you could do unless you got someone to look inside of it for you.

the TouchPad on/off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator (the
yellow LED) at the left top corner. If the touchpad is
disabled it is indicated by a yellow LED on upper left corner of the
touchpad and when the TouchPad is active, the light is off. This would disable the touchpad completely. Also, if you wish to disable just the double-click through double-tap, you can do this by going to the mouse/touchpad options from the control panel.

Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.
To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.
Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.
On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should
be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and
check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps! Please rate me if i am helpful. Thank you.
It sounds like the touchpad is working ok but probably needs some setting(s) adjusted. The touchpad settings can be accessed through the windows control panel. But before going to the control panel it's useful to review the touchpad basics for single and double clicking. They are as follows: •Tap once on the main touchpad for single click. •Tap twice for double click. •The lighter the touch, the better the response. •Tapping harder will not increase the touchpad's responsiveness.
•Opening the Control Panel The Windows Control Panel can be opened by: Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista) - OR - Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP) *The Enter key may be used on the keyboard in place of touchpad clicking*
In the Control Panel, do the following: •Select Mouse [Enter] (Brings up the touchpad properties sheet) •Look at the Buttons tab in the touchpad properties sheet. •Adjust the settings and test the touchpad until you get the response you desire.

If you know where the touchpad/mouse driver is located on a recovery disk, I would 'delete' the mouse via the control Panel, reboot and see if Win will reinstall the driver from the restore partition or, ask for a disk as a source and you have to know where that driver is on the optical disk.
I would locate the drivers on your recovery disks before you delete the current device.
Alternately, you might check Toshiba's support section for a touchpad driver for your OS and system and burn it onto a removable disk or thumb drive that you give to Win as a destination if asked.
READ THIS POST NOT THE OTHERS. you can configure each of the four corners of the TouchPad surface to act as different buttons when tapped. These corner regions are called Tap Zones. to disable this feature goto control panel, mouse, device settings, settings, tapping, tap zones, disable tap zones.
If you touch the top right corner of the touchpad, it restores down the window you are currently in. The bottom right corner of the touchpad minimizes the window you are currently in. The bottom left corner of the touch pad brings up the start menu.
