If you were root you should have been able to delete whatever you found.
I'm pretty sure knoppix and kanotix have basic ntfs support.

Prevention is better than cure - if you can't get them to install linux,
then tell them they need a good firewall, anti-spyware, anti virus and
browser protection. Then help them set it up, all the while mentioning
that this is all either built into or not needed for linux. Stress that
they must be responsible about keeping all those bits up to date,
otherswise they're infecting their friends computers.
