Suppose a certain virus, malware, etc, has infected my computer and I don't take any measures against it. Then, of course, if I keep running my computer then my hard disk will start churning within days. But suppose I shut down my computer till I found some good antivirus software, then would that virus or malware be able to cause any further harm to my computer while it's powered off?

No.

Just don't turn it back on again. Emotion: stick out tongue
