Free download virus removal?

My computer says i have infected documents or may have the risk of virus attacks but it won’t let me get rid of the viruses unless i have to buy an antivirus soft thing but were low on money and i don’t want to spend it. Is there any free downloads that i can use to get rid of the viruses?

Its a big scam
spybot s&d

George asks…

Please help with virus removal!?

I ran trendmicros Housecall and it said I have the virus MS08-067 but I can’t figure out how to get rid of it. The microsoft site was just confusing.

After that I tried Norton and it did a virus scan and said I had a virus called “Downloader” but again, I dont know how to get rid of it. Nortons “removal” section for the virus was blank.

Any help? Is there a good, free, virus detection and removal?
