North Texas charges students $30 if their computer is infected, and needs
to be cleaned.

If you don't want to download patches from Microsoft, and don't want to
pay McAfee, Symantec, etc for anti-virus software; should ISPs start

Would you pay an extra $50/Mb a month for your ISP to operate a firewall
and scan your traffic for you?
