Hello laith and axe0,
The reset to factory settings stopped at 99%, saying it was unable to locate ordinal 1. I pressed enter 6 times and it went to its normal startup. As I am a very stubborn person, after doing the necessary updates, I reset again to factory settings because I felt that the other process failed to complete something and I wanted to make sure everything was ok. I hope doing it again after some minutes is no trouble.. after this is done, I will install all updates, windows 10 and update you if the my system got better.
[EDIT: I forgot to mention that I found a possible clue to what was really happening in my laptop. When I wanted to backup my important files into a pen drive, their size was very big so I put half of them, copied them to another computer (to a mac), and inserted the pen drive again in my toshiba to delete what was there and put the rest. The thing is, when I tried to delete, the following files were stopping me from doing it: desktop.ini and thumb database file. I googled this and found out that this was a case of a virus. So perhaps the virus that was in my pc went into my pen drive right after I inserted it. Luckily I copied that half that I mentioned into a mac, where window's malwares are not effective.]

Have you installed Windows 10 yet?

No desktop.ini and Thumbs.db is not a virus, they are system files that are required. The website you went into must have been all the fake websites like solvusoft etc, they are made for scamming.

Correct, desktop.ini contains the settings of the part where it is.
For every folder you can have different settings, with desktop.ini the folders remember it.
Thumbs.db has thumbnails from photo's and video's, the preview pictures you can see in explorer, so they can show really fast.

Such files are system files and are meant to boost your personal experience with Windows.

Good afternoon,
But, I never had to remove those files before, it was hard for me to delete them from my pen drive when I wanted to delete what was there. They were always recreating. And when I wanted to deleted some of them that I had already copied into my mac to see if anything happened, it warned me that they protected. But yes, you may be right, perhaps this was not a case of vírus, but I went to trusted portuguese/brazilian websites. Not so sure about the english ones, but the other ones I mentioned recommended to do the reset I did today. As this never happened to me, I thought it was something created by a possible vírus.
Well, I am still installing the necessary updates in Windows 8.1 so that after I can install Windows 10. The second reset I did to factory settings managed to complete and my pc is faster again, as well as the internet browser. But until I install Windows 10, I'll see if this manages to continue, as well as if any blue screens of death appears again. Thank you.

Those files are automatically recreated yes.
Every system file is protected to prevent unwanted removal actions that may harm your pc.

Keep us posted

Hello axe0 and laith,
I did the reset to factory settings, my sistem was fast again. After, I installed windows 10, league of legends, mozilla firefox and now it is as slow as before. I am not getting BSOD's anymore, but when I play league of legends, I play it in slow motion, and the internet browser is slow again, and so my system is also getting slower.. I updated my graphics card to see if it would solve the problem, but it still remains.. And I don't believe this is because of windows 10, because 3 days ago, before I ran furmark, my system was fast, but after 5 minutes it went slow.. The only plausible reason seemed to be a malware/virus infection, but now that I did a reset I don't know anymore, I bought this laptop last december, it should be working fine.
I know this isn't a bsod problem anymore, but do you have any suggestions please? My ram can't possibly be dead.. maybe it's gpu?

Here is a screenshot of the activity in my pc, with mozilla firefox and league of legends open.

Please download and install Malwarebytes free (Uncheck trial version in the installation process)
Please run a threat scan with Malwarebytes, a full scan with your AV, scan your system with Adwcleaner and Kaspersky TTDSKiller.

Outside of Furmark and a reset, it sounds like an infection.

Hello axe0,
I've installed the programs you suggested, they found no threats. Today I've been searching a lot about what is going on with my pc, I managed to increase a bit the perfomance by disabling 'Super Fetch', according to what I've been reading in a reliable forum website. Also, I installed an antivirus called HouseCall by Trend Micro, it found 1 threat, but it was an app that came with windows, 'Symbaloo', so it was a false positive, but I still uninstalled it.
The reason why I disabled Super Fetch was because the file 'system' was consuming a lot of my disk and memory, and it still is, but much less. Besides that, the programs I use are still consuming a lot my memory and disk ONLY, and my pc is still slow in perfomance.
Also, I tried to do a full scan with Windows defender (I disabled avast antivirus shields), but I got the following error: 0x8007139f. I searched about it online and found out that people who have been having this problem reported that their pc's are also very slow, like mine.
My laptop is still under warranty, I don't know if I can deliver this one and get a new one based in this kind of problem but if I can't fix this, I'll try it out.

As a huge fan of Dragon Age I can't want to get Inquisition when it launches Nov. 18th of this year. Anyway the system requirements look interesting. Check out the "recommended" specs. And as I like to say, "minimum" just means the game will start :) Source: Dragon Age: Inquisition
