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.

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer Sanguis!

First off may i reccomend you read over the Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help thread. Once this has been done post accordingly in Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section, where one of the Malware Response team will help you out when they can.

Best of luck
