Remote Used

Can the Apple Remote control be used with a Windows-based PC?

A friend gave me a brand new Apple Remote control ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Remote ) that his office was just going to throw out. But I have no way to use it right now. I have 2 third-party iPod docks, and the remote works with neither dock (though each dock came with its own remote and each remote only works on its own dock, so I didn't expect much from that direction). And I'm not interested in purchasing a Mac.

So I would like to know if there is any way I can use the Apple Remote with my Windows-based PC? Is there a USB infrared (IR) receiver that will accept the Apple Remote signal? If I just bought any old USB IR receiver, is there a software that I could use to decode the Apple Remote's signal in order to use it with a Windows-based PC?

I know that the Apple Remote is supposed to work with the AppleTV. But are there other electronics that work with the Apple Remote besides the Apple iPod dock or Mac computers?

nope
