I know I can make one, but I can't place it anywhere. I don't have the HDD space for it right now

Short on cash right now, but I know I can get a HDD from a friend next time I see him, but since I live so far away I don't see him that often

Sometimes - I stress sometimes - even a system restore will put the system back to rights, depending on the severity of the virus/malware infection.

Mild - AVG puts in virus vault... problem sorted...
Medium - Scan, Use custom virus protector (no-name)
high - System restore, delete source
Extra High - Restore , disconnect Internet, scan with multiple programs... remove source

Cleaning OS Disk

I too would clean first if at all possible. Last Trojan I had imbedded itself on another disk (not the OS disk) and everytime I loaded a saved image it jumped right back on my OS. So cleaning first sounds good to me. I thought I would just add this in the discussion.

Cleaning and removing the infection would be my best option.
