Once I started messing with that Toshiba folder up pops Norton, within the Norton list was an unistall so thats what I did, uninstall through there as it still did not show up in control panel. A reboot after unistall and everything works.
I'm completely unsurprized that it was a pre installed program that caused the problem, happens all the time with OEM stuff. I also noticed that symantic "Norton" processes running in your task manager which tipped me off. Glad you got it working again janessa.
