A friend of mine is running an old Toshiba Satellite and has managed to get himself a nasty little virus. I told him I'd take care of it, and was hoping to remove the virus without having to do a complete wipe of the system. The computer cannot connect to the internet, but when booted in Safe Mode with Networking, it ran fine. I believe it's just a Trojan screening the computer, but I had already run Malware Bytes, and removed something like 70+ issues. However, when I reboot and go back into the computer normally, it will not let me connect. I ran Malware again, and it found 10+ issues. I'm thinking now that it's a registry issue caused by a virus. Any help or guidance would be exceptional. Thank you in advance.
I'm curently on a Mac, but I have access to a windows-based computer, as well as flash drives for transferring things over if necessary.
