Depending on what kind of problems the virus is causing, you have a few different options.
If the virus has only wreaked havoc on the operating system, you can reinstall it. Toshiba laptops do not come with a recovery CD. Instead, Toshiba provides a way for you to restore the computer's OS to its original factory settings through the boot menu. The details on how to do this for your make and model can be found here: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9102IR0000R01.htm
If the virus has somehow managed to prevent you from getting as far as the boot menu, or if the virus has destroyed the Toshiba factory settings backup, then you will need to contact Toshiba and have them replace the operating system. If you are under warranty, this will be of no cost to you.
