    Can use AVG to create a free bootdisk virus checker.

    You can stick F-Prot for DOS on a bootable CD. It wont however all fit on one floppy so you would need to split it over two disks then copy it onto the hdd.

    Again, I'm going to pimp Bart's site:

    With his tools you can create a bootable CD or DVD and include the latest version of Ad-Aware, McAfee Virus Scan and McAfee Stinger. You can even include Nero 5 or Nero 6.

    Boot from this CD and check for Virii or Spyware. It's a very handy CD to have lying around. It supports networking, has a web browser, etc. etc.
