Do you have the win98 CD?

If so,reinstall win98.

What is specification - processor, memory, hard disk etc?

Not having net access limits the chances of picking up a virus considerably, but can't eliminate it completely. All it takes is for somebody to borrow a diskette from an infected PC that does have Internet access and the result can be the same. AVG & avast! are free and the updates can be put on to diskette and transferred from an Internet enabled machine to your PC.
If you find this impractical then remember, NO CDs diskettes or USB flash keys that have been on another machine should be used. Eliminate the transmission pathways and the viruses will not be picked up.
