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:

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

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

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
