If you really want to scan a drive, you don't want to scan it from within the infected OS. 

You need a scanner that will boot the computer without starting Windows, or you need to remove the drive and scan it as a slave connected to a different computer. 

Windows Defender Offline - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/what-is-windows-defender-offline 

AVG Rescue CD - http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd-download 

Avira Rescue CD - http://www.avira.com/en/download/product/avira-antivir-rescue-system/product/avira-antivir-rescue-system/product/avira-antivir-rescue-system 

Kaspersky Rescue Disk - http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208282173 

It is also always good to have a utility boot CD on hand that contains tool other than virus/malware removal. These are all good ones: 

Hiren's Boot CD - http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/ 
SystemRescue Cd - http://www.sysresccd.org/Download 
Trinity Rescue Kit - http://trinityhome.org/Home/index.php?content=TRINITY_RESCUE_KIT_DOWNLOAD 
Ultimate Boot CD - http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html 

For scanning within Windows:

Rkill - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/ 

Malwarebytes - http://www.malwarebytes.org/ 

Combofix - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/ 

Linux Live CDs: 

Ubuntu - http://www.ubuntu.com/download 

Knoppix - http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html 

Also, remember to ALWAYS write a new MBR, and keep in mind that there are "infections" that no tool is going to detect or cure. For example, there is Malware that rewrites the DNS entries on the ROUTER, which causes all Google searches to be redirected. No matter how many times you scan the computer it won't detect the problem that is on the router.
