No i can't, but ...

Cleaning your computer  - and protecting it in the future -  can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected since 1999.

By using software , did you mean install software ?

without software it is going to be difficult to figure virus out. You can check the task manager or process of what is running and if it is a genuine process or not. Removing would be easy with software.

Why dont you ask your system admin to install the software and then you execute it ?

He is the one who should take care of this if he/she doesnot want to give executing or installing permissions to user.

All the best

Try Start->Run->Taskman to gain access to Task Manager.
Now make a note (jot down) all the running processes.
If you ever experience any quirkiness in the future - repeat this process and compare the running processes.  If something is there that wasn't before - you may suspect something is amiss.
To remove it temporarily, click Start->Run->MSconfig and deselect it on the startup tab...
