Hello Friends!

My Toshiba laptop was performing quite well and was fully satisfied with its performance but before some days my son did a few settings to the laptop and since then my computer is not running well.

Now it’s behaving abnormally and some applications like Office and antivirus apps are not responding.

I was trying to reset the laptop to the factory sett5ing but not got success because I have no proper idea to do so.
