Today at my cousins house, he was browsing the internet, without any anti virus program. Now he has a virus/spyware thats ruining his computer. A random anti virus program (possibly the spyware/virus) just pops up asking to register and stuff. I cant install any anti virus onto his computer. I went into safe mode for him, downloaded a portable antivirus for him ClamWin. It found 3 trojans, but it didn't seem to disinfect/delete the infections. So could someone maybe tell me a good executable antivirus that doesn't require installation. My friend showed me one, but hes not available, since hes on vacation, so I need someones help.

Thanks,
Fasih

Is this something I would have to install? Because you cant install anything in safemode. Could I possibly install it on a flash drive and run the scan on his computer?

Hello Fasih

if you can't seem to download anything have you tried an online scan?
Here's one you can try and let's see what it finds.
