toshiba recovery wizard warning

i just got a new computer (toshiba as the title says) after my last one broke down and just a few weeks in, i get this message popping up:



(i found this online - mine looks almost the exact same)

it worked yesterday just fine. i didnt click on anything (that i know of). and i dont want to run the system recovery. i dont want to lose all my data.

anyone know what this means or where it came from? did i accidentally run something? is it a virus? is my one month old computer breaking down?

i am having horrible computer luck these days.

Re: toshiba recovery wizard warning

Toshiba Recovery Wizard is the factory image restorer that can be run at boot. Clicking no on that screen should stop it from running. Alternatively , you could probably just reboot your PC using Ctrl-Alt-Del.

Just saw this:

Toshiba


The starting point for any Toshiba recovery option is the Toshiba Acclaim Self-Service page, which includes a Recovery Media link.


If your recovery partition is intact, you can get detailed instructions from two separate pages:



  • To restore the original Windows configuration using the Toshiba Recovery Wizard, follow the instructions in Support Bulletin 98082971.


  • To use the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator utility to create your own reinstallation disks, see Support Bulletin 98082984.


If neither of those options is viable, go to the Acclaim recovery media page and enter your serial number to get started.

Just curious if they gave you a recovery dvd.
