Hello Everyone. New to this forum, been reading it for a few days and couldn't find anything on what I'm about to ask.

First let me thank everyone who gives of their time helping others.

A lot of us have an older computer sitting around. The question is about setting up this box to use in cleaning our computers.
Can a machine be set up to accept the hard drive from an infected computer for cleaning? Does Ad-Aware/SpyBot/etc. need to be running on the infected machine; or will
they work on the drive from another, infected computer?

What tools would you install on the cleaning machine? Would you allow the cleaning machine to go online - Housecall, etc? Or keep it completely offline?

What other question did I neglect to ask?

Thanks for reading this.
