Try to unregister the User and Supervisor in Toshiba Assist. In BIOS Security the User and Supervisor passwords both has to be "Clear"

I wouldn't disable that feature, as otherwise your data can be used if the laptop gets stolen. As long as the disk is password protected no thief will be able to misuse your data, and if also the BIOS is Password protected he won't be able to use the laptop. It'll make it a useless "brick" to the thief, as the BIOS passwords can't be reset without knowing the password or without the help of the manufacturer, who requires "proof of ownership" before they will help, and harddisk passwords can't be reset at all without knowing it, even with the help of the manufacturer...

As I said, you have to first use the password to get into the BIOS, then you will have an option within the BIOS to remove it. But again, I strongly advise against removing it for the reasons I noted earlier. Something else I forgot to mention, if you don't have a BIOS password set, anyone could set one, either intentionally or by mistake, and then you wouldn't be able to get into the BIOS again without knowing it, or without getting in touch with the manufacturer and prove of ownership and with many of the manufacturers this won't be free...

As I mentioned several times, you need to enter the password first to remove it. If you don't know the password, there is no way to remove it.

the purpose of the password is to make the disk useless if you don't have the password
do you have it? if not, buy another disk

You have to get into the PC's BIOS like was mentioned earlier, and then in the security settings you can remove the password. But you'll first have to enter it to be able to remove it. If you forgot the password then you can't remove it.
