Default Quick question on a hard drive

Hey guys,

Quick question

If I want to take a hard drive from someone else s PC and use programs on it to clean it up, etc, is there any way of making sure no virus's can jump off it if there are any?

I have virus protection, but I have no idea what will be on that drive. It may not have any virus's, but I don't want to put it in to find my protection doesn't work, and my PC dies.

Like a free program that will make a drive read only to my computer but still allow deleting, etc on the source drive?
