Of course it might work
But then again more than likely the result would be NO. The OS is capable of detecting the change from the one computer to the next. The only way that it might still work is if the two computers are OEM and the same model. Otherwise the data can be transferred but not the OS.
Most manufactures make a Recovery Partition now that will wipe the hard drive of all info and return the computer to "factory fresh" condition. That should also rid the computer of most virus. Even better, if the Recovery DVD set was made, that will do the same thing and wipe the whole hard drive and rebuild even the Recovery Partition or one could even use a new hard drive to start with.
