Two possible solutions:
  1. connect the computers in a LAN, and mount a remote drive as a local drive letter so the antivirus program on that computer (which is kept up to date) can check the other's drive
  2. buy a boxed version of an antivirus program in a shop and use that
The latter clearly has the disadvantage of not being able to automatically update the program and its virus signature data files.
