If that's sarcasm, it's not a bad idea.  The remote user was the one turning 
off remote scanning.  The server has it's own (more up-to-date defs) scanner. 
She doesn't scan the server and the server doesn't scan her.  If she uploads 
something, then it is scanned.  It actually works quite well.  She actually 
did get one, and it never made it past the server.  (Aside: She refused to 
admit it was her though, until the virus dropped it's payload and trashed her 
system.  It also overwrote her CMOS.)
