This sounds like it could be spyware. Try the following.........
Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (Window washer free download). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

I am trying to recover a Toshiba Satellite Pro A210-EZ2203X with the recovery discs. I got the wrong machine error. In the meantime I installed a copy of Windows XP home that I had for another computer....


OK were the Recovery Discs made by you or did they come with the computer? If you made them I've seen the user created recovery discs fail countless times. Normally there might be a partitioned disc on your hard drive that has the Toshiba Recovery on it. You would get to hit by hitting a function key when you boot the machine. But you might have wiped it out once you installed Windows XP if you formatted the drive.

I think you are going to need an Operating System Disk that has the same operating system that came with your computer. Your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) key is probably on the bottom of the laptop or insde the battery case. Once you load the operating system it will prompt you at some point for the Key on the COA sticker so it can activate windows. The key is a series of 5 letters and number combinations. Hopefully it is readable on your sticker. If you have Windows Vista Home Premium you can't reinstall with a Windows Vista Home Basic. You need your exact operating system.

Can I use a Toshiba recovery disk for A210 series if I have an A505 series? They are both Windows Vista


That is about the only thing thew same about them other than the name Toshiba. The A505 is an Intel Processor, the A210 has an AMD processor. They have completely different video graphics chipsets, audio, and LAN configurations, Assuming that the A210 disc will load in the A505, you would not get proper video, audio or LAN drivers. Recovery disks are made for the machine they are bundled with. You can try, but don't be surprised if your result is less than optimal.

I want to change the operating system wimdows vista to windows 07 from K.ganesh kumar 09441089186


You have 2 options (purchase)
1. upgrade the win vista to win 7 - you need to check the type of win vista that you have if it is 32 or 64 bit or HOME BASIC HOME PREMIUM PROFESSIONAL ULTIMATE
home basic is not win 7 upgrade supported.

2. Win 7 OS full version disk.

Back up all of your files before doing anything on your computer.
