any antivirus will need the internet to update it's virus lists regularly - so without internet, you would need to download these yourself, and install them on the lab PC - which seems not practical to me
the most practical suggestion is from Thomas imo

There is a windows 7 compatible version of steadystate. Check the ms site. There is also a way to get steadystate working for 7 (I used both alternatives for a while)
