Toshiba Power Saver - fatal error

I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite A105-S2716 with Win XP Home Edition

The Tech at the store where I purchased it changed the settings from Toshiba Power Saver to Portable/Laptop.

I ran a Registry Cleaner program from System Tech XP (summitsoftcorp.com).  

Now, when I boot I see -

"Toshiba Power Saver:  A fatal error has occurred.  This program will be terminated.  Code 0x0"

How do I fix this problem?   Afterwards, how do I decide what option to select: Portable/Laptop or Toshiba PowerSaver?

Portable/laptop is Microsoft's pwr theme, the toshiba one was customized by them for your laptop & provides extra features.  I have an old tosh laptop & use the tosh pwr svr after modifying the settings.

Fine, but I get this - "A fatal error has occurred.  This program will be terminated.  Code 0x0"

How do I fix this problem?
Try going to add/rem & removing the toshiba utility for power mgmt, then try reinstalling it.  U can download it from toshiba's website for your laptop if you don't have it on cd.

i found this at microsoft hit (cntl+f & find "0x0")

I'm sure that a more tech savvy guy would find those links helpful. . .

Thanks for the Toshiba DL info
Sorry I couldn't find anything more useful on the error.  Everything I found was from different applications pointing to their usage of pwr mgmt.  Best thing to suggest was to remove the Toshiba utilities & download a newer version.

I appreciate everyone's efforts to help me.  I found the answer by accident.  I bought a third-party fixer-upper called System Mechanic and it put Toshiba Power Saver back by default.  At least I think that's what happened because that's the only thing I did to fix my machine.)
