That's pretty much it. The laptop is running extremely slow and I just want to wipe it clean. I can't find any step-by-step guides online, so any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance.

See your User's Guide beginning on Page 57 for "Hard Drive Recovery Utilities". A205 User's Guide
You also have a copy on your desktop.

Notice that in the User's Guide to which CB referred you, the section Hard Drive Recovery Utilities has this.
(Available on certain models)
The spec above for your model does not list the Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator, which means your model probably does not have the necessary recovery image. You can verify that by following the instructions in Toshiba Document ID 98082629.
If that's indeed the case, then the recovery discs accompanied the computer. If you cannot locate them, you can obtain them from Toshiba.
You would follow the instructions on p.64 of the User's Guide to restore the system from the discs.
