    theres a hundred steps, hmmm

    get all your windows xp drivers in one place, either the manufactuers driver disc, or download them all from toshiba put on a disc

    put on the xp disc to the machine, follow through to the install, then when done, do the drivers

    you need to look up your toshiba model, as there is a recovery partition, you need the key to activate the reinstall

    that is so helpful, i will try other methods first by adding a anti virus and malware bytes.

    i would reinstall it this time

    back up your stuff while still working

    resinstall

    use microsoft security essentials to be your antivirus, and you should be fine
    malware bytes keep on hand, but no point installing right now

    there was no recovery partition



    then you are in a mess, you have a netbook with no cd drive

    even if you get the discs, you are still stuck....

    you need an XP disc

    toshiba nb200 drivers on cd

    a usb CD/DVD external drive

    yes, there is a free antivirus called
