Removing unknown viruses / malware.

My friend's PC boots with XP Pro but he's unable to do much beyond that. Can't start programs etc.. and the suspicion is that the PC is infected. It's not possible for me to go to the PC.

Would it be possible / effective if the infected hard drive is removed and installed in my second PC as a slave and then an attempt is made at disinfection?

you could do that but you risk infecting your own pc if it is a worm

if you have an internet connction i would suggest as a 1st point of call stinger you can run it from a floppy disk
