there is a way

hello
first of all there is a certain way to reinstall
Windows Vista, you should have gone into the main drive where vista was installed and and manually formatted vista deleting it off your system. Vista is not installed like XP it intalls in a completely different fashion.
you should the laptop back to toshiba and ask them to install vista again.

second of all vista takes a lot of physical memory and it slows even more if you have viruses or spy ware.
get your pc checked for spy ware that is a must it is crucial this is done at the toshiba maintenance.

3rd of all vista is not a very good OS
it just sucks your pc of any resources


number 4 make sure your boot sequence is correct and that your bios is up to date.
after all of this
makke sure the technician wipes hard disk clean before he installs vista that is a must .

number 5
as for your internet being slow this has to do with both your ISP and your IP settings
contact your ISP about that issue
