In the first instance, I would download and run ComboFix - this cures a lot of Malware. Once downloaded, just run it - it doesn't need an internet connection

You could also install the AVG Free antivirus scanner (although there are others too) and manually download and install the current definitions each time they are updated:-

Stinger from Mcafee is a good standalone virus scanner that is updated almost daily.

I have used it many times on non Internet computers
it was updated yesterday at major Geeks:

you can use Avira Free Antivirus and use it´s manual update tool dedicated for circumstances like yours, when machine is offline

or you can use BitDefender and use offline updates

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

just a note : if you want an AV on a system without internet, you must update the virus  signatures yourself
and i don't know if that is possible..

@nobus - MANY anti-virus products post their signatures for download purely for this reason
