Most of you MVPs, Helpdesk and System Engineer types most likely work in
large private corporations, or some level of state or government.  That
said, do any of you have a virus response plan in place such that when your
central Virus monitoring system (be it the Symantec System Center Alert
Management Console or whatever) sends out a virus alert that a machine has
been compromised such that the virus could not be removed or quarantined
then an IT incident-responder (be it a helpdesk or field technician) hits
the floor, finds the workstation and executes a written set of procedures to
clean the virus or wipe the machine and re-load the OS.

I am looking for whatever someone has written up so that I can get a
head-start on this writing assignment my manager has dumped on me.  :-)
