I was handed a laptop and asked if i could help a friend out. here is the computer specs:

hp pavilion ze5300
xp home sp3 version 2002
pentium 4 2.66Ghz
448 MB RAM
50 GB of free space

When i plugged it in and tried to connect to the internet (wired connection) it said unable to connect as if the connection wasnt there. So i down loaded mbam and installed via flash drive(from my desktop) ran a quick scan,had to go in and set internet optioons to auto detect settings and was able to connect to the internet. downloaded the updates for mbam and ran a complete scan and came back with 33 infections. I have log files of both scans but I dont know where to go from here.UPDATE the last scan did not have any infections. Do I need to use another program to make sure its gone? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

From my knowledge, mbam takes care of these kind of things. I would say it's safe to give the computer back to your friend.

Tell your friend to regulary scan his computer with mbam.
You can also try SuperAntiSpyware - recently, it removed some malware I got which avast let through and mbam didn't detect.

mbam doesnt show any more infections so i decided to do like Guy suggested. I downloaded and installed super anti spyware. all was well. no infections in the memory or registry but about 10 minutes into the files it just shut down abrubptly. It was showing 30+ infections.....again!!!! I am currently rescanning the system with superantispyware. will post when it finishes or shuts down again. As i said earlier any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't claim to be an expert, however if there are no more problems with the laptop it's probably safe to give it back - remind him to regularly scan his computer!
If there are problems with it you should probably ask a moderator or other more senior member.
