    This may not be the correct group to ask my question so if its not forgive

    My daughters was told by her ISP that her PC has a virus. Her ISP ( said she had not updated her McAfee antivirus and firewall for
    over a month and it had allowed in this virus. She is now unable to access
    the internet at all and is told by NTLworld that someone else should go to
    the McAfee website and down a DAT file and install it on my daughters PC to
    remove the virus which will allow her to go back on-line. I've looked at
    the McAfee site and find it difficult to locate what it is I'm supposed to
    be looking for, can someone advise me further please. Or even an
    alternative to get her on line
