    I’m assuming you have no anti-virus or anti-malware software installed.

    The easiest thing would be to download the anti-virus software from another computer and then transfer it to the other pc and install it. I suggest Microsoft Security Essentials(free) http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

    If that doesn’t work for you then I suggest you make this bootable rescue CD from BitDefender (also free). http://thepcsecurity.com/bootable-antivirus-rescue-cd-from-bitdefender/

    Again I suggest you create that boot CD on a different computer to ensure it is created safely and correctly.
