Questions that I have to ask.
Did you make restore disks when you first bought the Machine or software?
Did you make your backups on the machine you are using?

I normally have to go to a factory reset, and reload programs and saved files. I have had this machine 5 months, I gripe like hell when my old software does not run, after it has updated. Factory settings allow me to run old software.

I am using Windows Vistra Home Predium with Service Pak 1 and Service Pak 2.

    You cannot as Vistra runns on a dating system. I got Pak2, and then a week later Pak1. It took nearly took about two hous to load Pak1 with several reboots along the way. Then Pak2 disapeared from the update history, This mechine updates on a daily basis, and it is hard keeping track on which program is doing what. Restore points are useful if you want to keep your files and programs. I have never bothered to make a full system backup. I just backup files that I need,

I need to get back in my OEM vista home premium

If you contact Toshiba, they can send you the original restore disks. If you are really nice to them, they might send them out for free.. I believe normally they do charge but they sent them to me for free a couple of years ago with my Toshiba laptop :)

I want to do a clean install of Vista Home Premium

Well first thing. Did you backup all your files ? Emails, documents, music etc ?? If so then you can run the recovery disc and select the C: drive. This will install the OS and all the software that was shipped with your laptop when you first purchased it. However, all software that you download or installed will not be available and you will need to download and install that software again...Hope this helps...

you probably uninstaled it, but didn't remove it from the registry properly... try searching the registry on: Start > Run and type Regedit, and go to search, and type SmartBro... yuste delete those keys and reboot...

warning! backup your registry before you make any changes!
