    What os are you running?
    If you don't have any anti virus software installed just download avg free edition, or use windows defender, that's included with windows 8 and 10.

    I don't think a virus will affect your phone, but instead of risking it, just get rid of it.

    Running a Windows PC on the internet without any active antivirus software is a dangerous and indeed idiotic thing. It takes not even an hour and you have something just by clicking on websites. Probably you don't even notice a virus, trojan or other malware, but others will do.

    Connecting a BB to an infected PC will probably not harm the BB. But the malware can get access to data stored on your device. And it's possible that you later infect other PCs when you connect your BB to their PCs.
