That would be a bad idea. You run the risk of getting whatever is hiding within the files on the drive. You'd be better off just cleaning her drive while it's still in her computer. Plus, it will save you the hassle of opening up two computers.

I like to run both Spybot and AdAware. One picks up what the other may miss. They work very well no matter how much is loaded on the drive.
