          This immediate remote virus removal may take hours
          because scans are run that require system monitoring
          to assure virus removal is progressing normally.

          Root kit viruses (the nastieness) found in Master Boot Records
          cannot effectively be removed remotely.

          If the PC is used or disrupted during the service appointment time,
          it increases the duration of the call and the cost.
