Is ordering stuff over the internet safer with a Linux Live CD?

Rather than running my main OS, Windows XP, to buy things online with a credit card (the site I am buying something from is secure, but you never know about the computer)

I ran spyware scans, but you can’t be certain if it got everything.

So should I run a Linux Live CD, open Firefox, and buy my item this way?
because the Live CD has no spyware
