If I connect an infected computer on my home network, can I infect other computers on it?

I ask because I want to remove a virus from someone else's computer but I have to connect it on my home network.

Anyone have options on this?

Yes. A virus (such as ConFicker) Uses this to their advantage.
That's how ConFicker was able to spread so fast.

However, if you catch the virus fast enough, the likelihood of it spreading is low.
