First you need a antivirus software. you can download a freeware software like AVG free 2012 edition. But its highly recommended you buy a full version for maximum security.

Next thing is to install and update your antivirus. You need to have a internet connection for that. Which i suppose you do have.

When you done updating. Go to the scan tab to start antivirus to check your computer.(first time scan may take time depending on your hard drive capacity make sure you do it in idle time or when you are going away )

once the scan is done it will show you infection/ virus and infected file. Make sure you take a good look at them. There may be some of your important data that you do not want to lose. You can move such data to virus vault instead of deleting them.

There you go.. Virus Clean

Only if you transfer an infected file to the un-infected computer is it possible, or if you have an open connection where the infected computer may send (without permission) code, or files -like SQL injectors-. One other way is if you have a connection where you're connected to a server through the other computer that lets the infected computer 'ping' (another way of sending code to comfirm connection status).
