Question about PC Desktops
You didn't say what virus the computer is infected with so it is kind of hard to name a specific solution to the problem. However here is something generic that might help out.
It sounds as if you may have picked up a virus which has disabled your anti-virus program. There are quite a few out there that will do this. Try going to Malwarebytes.com and down loading Malwarebytes Anti-virus. If you can't do it from the infected computer, find another computer and download it to a flash drive then install it. The definition files may be a little out of date and, depending on how bad your computer is infected, you may not be able to update them immediately. Don't be concerned about that - just run the program and see what develops.
Avast is another free anti-malware program that is worth downloading. I have the Technician's version which runs from a bootable CD, but the free version works pretty well also.
Good luck - some of these things can be quite nasty to deal with.
