While surfing using explorer the mouse stops responding correctly:
- right mouse button doesn't open a sub-menu.
- left mouse button is half functioning (for example, in IE, I can click links but I can't click the menu buttons)
- I can't use the middle button
I never had this problem before. Now, I have this problem frequently. it happens alot while using IE but I can't be sure if it has anything to do with it, because it affects other parts of the system as well.

At times after enabling / disabling disk compression on Win 7 or Vista boot drive you may receive the Bootmgr is Compressed error upon restarting your computer as displayed below:

There are registry commands also that can be used. But the above 2 steps can be very helpful to start with.

If it is real old it needs to be replaced but that can be expensive. Buy a newer one and get a laptop hard drive adapter at best buy or other store and then you have more memory. Try blowing into it. Disconnect all power and battery and then hook it back up and turn on watching the fan. If it lurches or freezes up...it is wore out. Do not leave your laptop on for long periods of time. This wears out the part fast.
put the disk in your computer
go to windows explorer
look for the drive that has your disk in it and open that drive letter ...probably e or f ...
you will now see all the files on your disk
you can drag and drop them to wherever you want to save them on your computer.
my pictures is a good place ... but maybe make an actual file folder with a name on it that will let you remember what those pictures are about or from. etc.
make as many file folders in the my pictures folder as you like ... or just make your own main file folder and sub folders ... called photos ... or something like that.
I recommend that you uninstall sliverlight first. and reinstall IE7.
MS security updates usually doesn't cause any problem, but the other files may.
if you remember or go to control panel>>add and remove program. and click on show updates. select the updates that is most recent and deleted them.
you can always reinstall them from MS web site.
As far as the fan issue goes, especially if it's a laptop, blow out the fan exhaust area. Use compressed air to blow out the ventilation area in the opposite direction that air flows through it normally. You'll be amazed how much dust comes out. You can try one of those crappy over-priced ridiculously low pressure canned air deals but to really get it clean, find someone with an air compressor. A mechanic friend or someone in construction that uses an air nailer maybe? If it's a desktop, try blowing out the processor heat sink preferably with the fan removed. Be careful, start at lower pressure and slowly work your way up. Also, if you take the fan off of the heat sink, be careful not to knock the heat sink off of the processor or you will need to clean both surfaces (heat sink and processor), reapply a thin layer of heat sink grease, and reinstall the heat sink and fan assembly. I'll leave the second half of you question open incase both issues are one-in-the-same.
Can only find one manual for this machine and the download is only compatible with Windows ME. The hard drive is located in the front left hand corner of the machine. Look at the front for a retangular panel, held by two screws, that slides out. Also, with some of the older Toshibas to acess the drive, you had to remove the plastic that surrounds the keyboard, holding the mouse buttons.
