Where can I find an online anti-virus that doesn't install on your PC?

Without admin access to the PC you cant upgrade the antivirus. Chances are
that half of those free virus checkers are themselves virus ridden anyway.
Try using an ubuntu cd and booting it  into the live operating system. This
will run the ubuntu operating system from the cd instead of the hard drive
and avoid the need to use the installed copy of Windows. You might not be
able to save anything, but you might be able to get internet access and try
out a few applications that Ubuntu has to offer.
