Well you're in a slightly sticky situation really if you're limited on what tools you have at hand.

You can try the obvious, read up as much as you can on the net (virus encyclopedias etc) about your infections *and how to remove them* then give it a bash, basic steps include removing startup enteries using msconfig, killing processes, deleting virus/trojan files (maybe in safe mode). Clearing your system restore etc.

Your primary obective is to get your internet access working properly so that you can download some big guns.
