nope nope... I wouldn't. Chances are that the wireless to the router (which I assume is hard wired to the PC) will infect the desktop with a virus as well or spyware or what not. Try getting rid of the virus first =) (AVG... Spybot... Ad-aware...)

Sounds good! Good luck and try running an anti-spyware program at least once a week for good health of your computer! =)
