This is straightforward.

Create a local folder:

c:\localtexmf\tex\latex   (it can be any other drive e.g d:\, depending 
on your computer)

Place your class file into this folder.

Or you can create another folder under the "latex" folder and place your 
files in there if you have many files, e.g:


Then, go to settings of MikTeX - Directories. Add the "d:\localtexmf" 
folder to the MikTeX path list.

Then go to Tasks and Refresh file name DB, Refresh font map files and, 
Update package database.

If you are using LyX, go to Tools - Reconfigure. Restart LyX and see 
your class file is installed.

Before using LyX, I highly recommend to test MikTeX using a regular 
LaTeX editor

Good luck!
