Plug it in - right click - you should have an option to scan with your Anti Virus software.

If the Dongle as some kind of memory in it, then yes it could store a Virus

What do you mean by a "dongle" - if you mean a wireless adapter - then probably not.

If you mean a memory stick - then it certainly could have viruses in it, and that probably means you have them in your PC too. In this case, better get checking quickly!
