    Where to find Toshiba Service Station app Download


    Toshiba Satellite L55 -A5226, W10. I don't find Toshiba Service Station on my computer. I may have lost it a while back while resetting it. I've looked on the Web but didn't have success. I don't even remember if it was ever there, although I thought all Toshiba's came with it pre-installed. I know I had it on my older Toshiba, running XP. Ideas?

    Toshiba OEM software is often specific to each model. You need to go to Toshiba support and look for the downloads appropriate to your model, here...

    Unlike my Toshiba, yours appears to be officially supported for Windows 10, however the Service Station is only available for your PC in versions for 7 and 8. It does not seem to be supported for Windows 10. This may not be a bad thing though, apparently it needed patches to fix security vulnerabilities: Toshiba Service Station Security Update

    The Toshiba Service Station application creates a service called TMachInfo that runs as SYSTEM and receives commands via UDP port 1233 on the local host. One of those commands is called Reg.Read and can be used to read most of the Windows registry with system privileges...

    Edit: Until a few minutes ago I did have the W8 version installed on my W10 machine. It seemed to run OK, but I never accepted the T&C when I read just how much info Toshiba wanted to collect - it has just been uninstalled :)

    My Toshiba still has the Service Station but it's from Windows 8.1 last updated Feb 2016 ver 2.6.16.0, they don't supply a version for Windows 10 on mine. The updates come via Windows updates now.

    I would not bother with it now, I have never got anything from it since Windows 8.1 around August 2014 a BIOS update.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not overly concerned about getting Service Station. I've done without it and can continue doing so.

    I wonder if a program exists that provides similar functions to Service Station?
