Hi. :)

You appear to have some software installed called:-

TOSHIBA Recovery Disc Creator

Since you have no Optical Drive on the machine, you could create some if you use a USB/Optical Drive for example. You could probably purchase such from say PC World for example and or any shop that sells computer related hardware. Or have a look on Amazon...

Next:

Now in theory you should be able to invoke the Recovery Partition, which is de-facto a reformat and reinstallation of the Windows Operating System. So basically your machine will be as was, when first purchased/booted up etc.

So on the page above(TOSHIBA Recovery Disc Creator) scroll down to and follow the instructions for:-

Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition

Good luck and let myself know the outcome please...

Hi. :)

Thanks Dakeyras.

You're most welcome!

Windows re-installed.

All seems to be well again.

Good...Most new machines when shipped by the vendors tend to come with all kinds of dross pre-installed and if the inbuilt recovery partition is invoked like you just did with the Toshiba, basically it is back as was when first booted up as I mentioned prior.

So this application here is worth both downloading and running.

Plus my generic advice here will still apply etc.

Next:

Any questions? Feel free to ask, if not stay safe!
