I use Sophos and so I can just go to the dropbox folder (in documents) and right-click and scan.

Otherwise do a custom virus scan and browse to your dropbox folder.

Install dropbox on PC and then right-click the icon in tray and choose dropbox folder to show the dropbox folder location on your pc
