My grandparents got a call the other day from their ISP saying that their server was being attacked by their computer. When I called they suggested a botnet.

I'm not sure how they could've gotten a virus, because all they know is how to open hotmail... but maybe it was an email attachment or something. Anyways, the ISP has shut off their internet so I was not able to download anything and did not have my own computer with me.

I ran their antivirus (AVG) but it didn't find anything. What would be the best program to use to find the problem?

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
