All your friend has to do: find another friend or family member who HAS Internet and take his laptop there to connect and register. With a desktop it's possible also, but somewhat more work.

One question remains: how will he do the daily updates with new virus information?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
