Toshiba Satellite needs restoration

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437 laptop and it has spy-ware or something that has disabled my LAN, system restore, my anti-virus and any anti-virus/spyware removers that ive downloaded.(it won't let me install them or run ones that ive downloaded on my desktop and transferred over) Ive heard that its possible to restore the laptop to its factory state but wont that also erase the operating system? I don't care about any files, i have what i need on a disk. Is there any way to restore this thing without erasing or having to reinstall WIndows? I might have a restore disk but im not sure.

Thank you for any help!!

I have a toshiba A215-S7437 and i get the error message read disk error when trying to boot up

A disk error is a fatal error on the hard drive, SMART monitoring will show you this in the BIOS, restoring to factory settings will not cure it.
You need to get a new hard disk and reinstall your OS

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437 Laptop Password Problem?

You should first check if the pasword is set on the hard drive. If so you can simply change the hard drive and it will then boot and ask for the operating system disk. If not, you should try by removing the cmos battery and waiting at least 10 minutes. (this works on older laptops) however, the laptop's power suply cable and battery should be removed prior to performing this procedure.
