Windows 7: can I run SURT from a USB stick?

can I run SURT from a USB stick?

Because my satellite internet will take ages (like 80 hours or something) to download SURT, would I be able to download it onto a USB (via WIFI from my town's library, onto my laptop) and then install/run it on my home desktop computer?

Please forgive if this is a stupid question

You can - but I'd advise copying it to the desktop and running that copy, unless it's USB3, as it's a very large file.
