whenever i right click an image either on the desktop or in a folder, my whole computer just freezes up. I have to use ctrl alt del to get it back to normal unless its on the desktop then i have to restart or log off then on.

Are you using Windows XP Pro?
Did you just install Service Pack 2?

If so, un-install Service Pack 2 as I got the same problem with my computer too.

Man I've just been *drooling* over that same Toshiba that's nice stuff! :)
As far as your mouse problem have you run a virus scan or tried with another mouse? If you are using your touchpad try a ps/2 or usb mouse. You may have already tried these but I figured why not ask.
