Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
I would suggest you invest in a good antivirus software program and run it first to see if it resolves your issues. As Ladytech99 put it, restoring your hard drive is a drastic measure for a computer virus and should only be done as a last resort (as in if it crashed your drive and you were unable to retrieve any info). If you got a virus once, you will most likely get it again. each time you get a virus will you restore your hard drive? A good antivirus program will protect you and save you time and effort in restoring your hard drive each time. It is always a good idea to back up important documents regardless of virus protection or not. would suggest getting an external hard drive just to store those documents, while providing mobility in case your pc crashes and you need immediate access, you can always connect the drive to another pc and access them immediately.

If your hard drive is big enough try using Partition Magic unless you already have another partition. You can send your most important things like music, pictures and docs to the other partition. Then do a reinstall only on the C partition. Doing a system restore is drastic anyway putting your computer back as the day you bought it.
Viruses are great for messing up window system files and settings which without proper virus removal software, re-installation of the most practical partition (C) is the one to target your repairs to. This case most likely being reinstalling windows which by default is only on C. Be careful of your choices when choosing which partition to delete and reinstall. Pick only C. leaving (x) where that means your other partitions, alone.
