My home computer is telling me over and over that I have a virus that is repeatedly making copies of items on my computer. I have lost the ability to go online... it keeps telling me I have to consult the Systems Admin. and I guess that IS me... it tells me to update my spyware but, I can't go online. I am at work (I teach school). Can I download a spyware detector from here, save it to the desktop and then jump it to my jump drive and take it home and install it?

Yes. Just be sure that it is an .exe file that you save.
Cheers,
