I have a dell lattitude lap top running windows 7. I had picked up a virus that seemed to shake up norton AV. I think I have it settled, but still can not have anyone webex in. Norton did not think this was the virus and suggest I search the OS or whatnot. Before reinstalling Windows 7, is there a program I can run similar to the old scan disk, to check for errors?

You can use the scan disc built into Windows 7.
Right click My Computer/properties/tools/error checking.
I don't know what a webex is.
You can also run sfc /scannow from cmd.
