If you're talking about a compulsory software solution, why not, as an
ISP, go back to authenticated activity? Distribute PPPOE clients mated
with common anti-spyware/anti-viral tools. Pull down and update signatures
*every time* the user logs in, and again periodically while the user is
logged in (for those that never log out). Require these safeguards to be
active before they can pass the smallest traffic.

Cost prohibitive..  In order to do that you'll need licenses from the
AV companies..

Oddly enough, AOL and several other large providers seem to have no problems
advertising some variant on 'free A/V software'.
