I'm trying to fix my friends laptop for him. He got a malware that changed his homepage and search system and made browsing slower. i think he said it was called zensearch. Anyways he followed some removale guide from google after doing it there hasnt been any signs of the virus like it used to be, now whenever you try to view some websites like google its says there's an error with the security ceritficate. When you try to go on facebook the page is like white with random links and a loggin box no decals or any info from actual pages. I dont even know where to start and he doesnt remember what remval tools he used and the only one still on the laptop is malwarebytes.

Also he uses internet explorer, and firefox. Chrome used to be his main browser but he uninstalled trying to fix the error and it blocks him from the download page. System restores fixes nothing and he doesnt have repair disks.
