Need more detail regarding the 'infection'. However the best route would always be to format the hard drive and then reinstall the operating system. Make sure you backup all of our files that you want to keep such as pictures, documents, etc. Be careful about what you keep since some files might be the source of the problem such as a virus hidden in an mp3 file.

My computer always says toshiba service station has stopped working and it is always starting in safe mode

Could be a sign of malware infection. Some infections change settings on a computer and slow it down. Use a functional anti-malware program to scan for infections.

I have a virus on my computer that none of my scans can seem to find. I have even done a system recovery to month ago and it is still here. I am in safe mode on my computer right now trying to find help....

The approach for a virus infection depends on what type of infection we are talking about. We need to know first the type of infection or what file is infecting the computer. Check the system configuration utility on your windows by typing msconfig on the run box. Check out the content of the startup and services tabs. Reseach on the entries on what are potentially infections running on your computer. Once you have found out the infection, try to search for entries in the registry editor. Type regedit on the run command. On the Registry editor, right click on computer and the choose search. Search for all entries of the found infection and delete them.
Note: Make sure that you create a restore point prior to deleting entries in the registry editor. One mistake here may make your computer unable to boot. But before creating a restore point, delete all current restore points by going to system properties. (right click on My Computer and choose properties) then on the system restore tab, un-check the box that says enable system restore then click on apply. Then put a check again then click apply. This should delete all previous restore points.

My pc is infected by best malware protection.i cannot access my do i get rid of it/

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware(MBAM) from here.
Download Spybot Search & Destroy from here.
Install, update, and run full scans using both MBAM and Spybot.
Once they are finished scanning you can review the results and have the software remove the infections.
Once the infections are removed I would recommend rebooting the computer then running the scans a second time.

If you are not able to download and install these two pieces of software on your infected computer then you may need to download them to a different computer then transfer to the infected computer via USB Flash drive or CD, etc.

It will not be infected by virus. Maybe it is infected with computer virus? If so plug it to the computer withantivirus installed as flash device and check it for viruses. It is not a smartphone. Only smartphones may be infected by phone viruses.

My previous hp computer crashed due to spyware infection. I manually back up my maxtor performed 3-4 days prior to infection. Will the Maxtor files be safe to download into my new computer?

Well since you've said that you computer crashed due to a spyware infection and that you backed up your maxtor some days to the infection, there is every likelihood that the maxtor will also be infected. My advice to you will be to first of all scan the maxtor file with a very strong anti virus before sending it to your new computer or else you will end up loosing your new computer if the maxtor file also contain the spyware infection.
