Don't believe the hype.

Post the e-mail without the headers... (that's the body only).

Left-click and drag the cursor over and down along the body of the email until it is all highlighted.
Press and release the right mouse button and move the arrow down to "copy" then press and release the left mouse button.
Open up this comment box and left-click in it to select then right-click to bring up menu.
Left-click paste and viola!

Are you getting the message when you visit a site on the internet or is it windows that popping the message up? might just be a pop-up for you to purchase things online, if you have the OS install disc then you dont have to worry since you can reinstall the operating system still, just ignore that message. keep me posted then on what will happen ok?

Pls rate as fixya if helpful, thanks!!

How can I identify the update that causes the crashing and freezing in windows 8.1?

Try going to Control Panel, and then uninstall programs. You should have an option to see recently installed updates. Find your most recent updates, the ones that date when your computer crashed, and then uninstall them. Then instead of doing an automatic install actually view you're updates, and install them manually, One at a time. If you can't even get your computer to start up, you might try putting in your CD of Windows 8.1, or if you don't have that, your reboot disc, and have your computer boot from disc instead of boot from drive. To do that you would have to go into your bios by pressing F2, F5, or F8 right after you start your computer up, and that should take you into your bios, at which point you change your boot settings. Save your save your changes, and then keep trying to boot your computer back up. If you don't have a boot disk, you're going to have to take it to someone who does, like at Best Buy or another computer repair company.

You should get in touch with them as they must provide a disc or recovery parition which was bought when they bought that laptop.

If you have a Windows XP disk then you can normally install by going into BIOS and setting CD as first boot device. If it gives hard drive not found then you will need to install the SATA driver from the Toshiba website first.

My hard drive crashed. i have purchased another drive, but do not have the original boot CD. how can i get this so i can get my laptop back online?

Should have the license number on the back of the machine. I think you can use almost any Windows CD to relaod Windows then use the code on the back of the computer to register it (pretty sure, but not positive). If you bought this new you might get in touch with the manufacturer for more info.

If you want it to be fixed as soon as you can, you can buy a new Operating System Disk for example the Microsoft Windows Xp or buy the same operating system that you are using right now. You can also borrow someones CD that is the same Operating System version that is installed in your computer to reformat your PC right away. When you are using Windows, all you need is the CD Key that is used in your laptop, it is usually written in a sticker under your laptop. When you buy a brand new installer, you will have a new CD key in it. Dont forget to save/back-up all your important files first in an external harddisk, usb flash drive or in a CD first before you start reformatting your computer. Get a help from a computer guy on how to format it. Hope this helps.
