Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 scrubbed of malware-now wont run

\015 College daughter took this laptop away with her to college, downloaded music, ect and ended up with like over 200+ malware, virus and other unsavory hitchhikers. Have cleaned all that up with multipal programs. Now the system just wont run. She did NOT make a recovery disk when she first got the machine and dosnt have anything that came with it out of the box.\015\012Is my best bet to buy a recovery disk? another recovery method?\015\012Thanks in advance for any assistance you may have,\015\012KS\015

Answers :

Yes your best option is to buy the recovery software. It is cheaper than buying a copy of windows and then having to find all the drivers again. Before you do that just make sure when you start it up you do not get a recovery option because some laptops have the recovery information stored on a seperate section of the hard drive.
No need to buy a recovery disk, since Toshiba allows you to download one online.
