    You can restore the whole preinstalled software (Windows 7, Toshiba utilites, etc.) using Toshiba recovery disk. Do you have this disk?

    I donít know what notebook you have but since Vista the recovery disk must be created yourself. Therefore you have to start Toshiba recovery disk creator that is preinstalled on your notebook.

    But it seems now itís too late and if you donít have a recovery disk you must order a new one from Toshiba here:

    Normally after the first start of your notebook (out of box) you get a recovery reminder message that you have to start this recovery disk creator and you can find more details in your user manual:

    +Important INFORMATION+

    +your computer by restoring it to original factory state, you can do it directly+
    +from harddisk (press F8 when you boot your computer, choose "Repair your computer"+
    +and follow the menue instructions) or create a bootable Recovery Disc Medium for this purpose.+

    You can download just the Toshiba drivers from the Toshiba driver page.
    The other software and Windows OS is not downloadable.
    You can order the recovery disk as posted by user above but you cannot download this for freeÖ you will have to pay a small feeÖ I guess 30 Euros ...
