Try boot in safe mode by pressing F8 during start up
the run a virus scan and a adware scan. the problem your have sounds to me like something like a trojan or something has changed some settings in your computer, for instance, they have the ability to shut off windows update, program updates, take programs out completely, and also turn off restore points.
you can also go into control panel and system restore and check to see if there are any restore points available and turn back on the system restore function if it has been disabled.
But anti-virus is a really good place to start unless you want to format your drive and install you Operating System fresh, but I would say thats a last resort. You will lose everything you have saved in your hard drive.

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

Internet explorer closes down after 45 secs, no warning just shuts down, firefox also shuts down. Only on laptop and after microsoft updates had been added. Restored to time prior to updates but problem...


Try Resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings. This removes all changes made to Internet Explorer since it was installed, but does not eliminate your bookmarks or feed. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Close all Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer in Windows.
2. Click Start, And then click Internet Explorer.
3. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu and then click Internet Options.
4. Click the Advanced tab and then click Reset.
5. In the readjustment of Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
6. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK twice.
7. Close Internet Explorer and then reopen it.

If resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings does not fix the problem, uninstall Internet Explorer 8 and then reinstall it. Also run AdAware, scanned for viruses, disable 3rd party, disable microsoft firewall, and check for BHO's.

Windows shut down to prevent damage


You need to boot your system into Safe Mode by pressing F8 just before the Windows startup screen loads, once in Safe Mode do a system restore to a previous date to when your system was working.

This should sort out your problem.

When i power down my notebook, windows is not shutting down completely which causes a long power up. it came pre-installed. when i turn my computer back on, a screen appears stating windows did not...


First, run a scan disk/check disk option. You usually get prompted for this upon a reboot.
Second, if that doesn't work, windows is smart enough to create a few restore points when new drivers/updates are installed. Open up an explorer window (like my computer or my documents, not internet explorer) and press F1 for the help display. Search for system restore. It's very user friendly, so it should be pretty easy to find it

I NEED A RECOVERY DISC FOR GATEWAY LAP TOP IT HAS WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM IT IS BRAND NEW I DOWN LOADED A PROGAM IT MESSED IT UP


a lot of computers don't come with a recovery disk.
The System Recovery Options menu in Windows contains several tools that can help you recover Windows from a serious error. You can perform repairs to the files that Windows uses to start itself, perform a restore operation using System Restore, and restore your entire computer and system files using backups that you have made previously.
Note
  • If your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu, your computer manufacturer might have provided other recovery options. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website for more information.
  • If your computer has preinstalled recovery options:
    1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
      Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click the arrow next to the Lock button getcontent.aspx?assetid=eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, and then click Restart.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
      • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
    3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu as a preinstalled recovery option.)
    4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
    5. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.
    6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.
    7. i hope that this will help you.

Internet explorer being constantly shut down and being knocked off line ,also I am unable to go to system restore successfully.


Hello

The system restore component in windows is mostly flawed and causes more problems than it fixes.

If you must restore to the point of purchase use the windows installation disk or system restore disk that came with your pc.
