I read your response about restoring the PC (without the disks) because the laptop was running too slowly. Can you help me with that process, because I've never done that before? Does that also mean I could lose everything in my laptop?
Yes. The computer will be back to original factory settings. Hence, you will lose all the data. that's why I asked if you have backed up your impt files. You haven't reinstalled the OS on your computer siince you got it?

1. dying disk-drive, that takes a few attempts to read each file;
2. not enough RAM to run "too-many" simultaneous programs;

Either telephone Toshiba, and order a replacement CD, identical to the one they supplied when you bought the computer. Or, look for a program installed on your computer that you use to "burn" new CD/DVD disks, to create the "System Recovery" set of disks.
In some cases, when the laptop first starts booting you'll see an option something like 'Press F11 for system restore'. If your laptop doesn't show this option on boot, the only way to reinstall the operating system is with the installation disks. Alternatively, you could scan your computer for viruses, run a disk defragmentation by opening up the 'My Computer' icon, right clicking on your storage drive and selecting 'Properties'. Once in the properties menu select the 'Tools' tab at the top and run the disk defragmentor. If it doesn't run properly, run the 'Error Checking' utility from the same menu. Also be sure that your hard drive isn't completely full, as Microsoft operating systems use a part of your free space as paging memory.
did you make the driver/app disk and have the os restore disk....
you can do a dectructive restore and most of the viruses will remove... but if you have a restore partion a virus could of infected that.. and there are some that can write to the bois and MBR wich some restore dont fix.. I would rec running a free scanner after restore like house call from trend to make sure all of the viruses are gone
ps you can also try msconfig and disable startup and run task manger and see mem usage and check to see if you have enaff mem.. vista 2gb xp sp2 512+mb sp3 768+mb
