Slaving laptop to desktop
 
I want to slave my laptop to my desktop so I can check the desktop for viruses, malware, etc.

The desktop is in big trouble, even turning itself on at night. Wha? Yep. I ran AVG before everything stopped responding and it found 6 different Trojans! I'm assuming they've been cleaned off by AVG, but the desktop is still sick.

I want to slave my laptop so I can run all the Virus/Spyware/Malware programs. At this point I'm thinking the desktop is dying so I'm looking at this as a learning experience about slaving computers too.

Desktop is
Dell 4300 running Windows XP

Laptop is Dell Inspiron 1503 running VISTA

What do I need to buy? Where do I connect? Thanks a bunch in advance.

If you want to slave your laptop to your Desktop Dell 4300 just buy 2.5" hard disk enclosure for easy way. Get your laptop hard disk and put it on 2.5" hard disk enclosure then plug it in your desktop via USB. other option is via converter but its complicated you need to open your desktop and put the laptop hard disk and set jumpers or bios settings for master and slave hard disk.
