Is it ok to reinstall the D drive that I removed when the computer would not boot?

Odd question? Got infected (and I have a thread started but didnt want to bump it for this question)

Im running XP media center on a HP and it wouldnt boot after running malwarebytes. I pulled the slave drive to see if I could put it in another comp to scan and grab some info.

When I pulled it out, I restarted the infected comp and it booted. ran rkil, malwarebytes, and superanti pro. Things seem to be cleaned up so im wondering...

Is it a good or bad idea to plug the D(slave) drive back into that comp and run everything again?

Do not make any changes to your computer. It will make it more difficult for the malware team to assist you.

As you have an open logs topic I will close this one. When one of our helpers picks up your topic please let them know what you have done.
