After all these years, I'm still surprised a consortium of ISP's haven't figured out a way to do something a-la Packet Fence for their clients where - whenever an infected machine is detected after logging in, that machine is thrown into say a VLAN with instructions on how to clean their machines before they're allowed to go further and stay online.
This has been commercially available for quite some time so it would be only up to the providers to implement it.
