Please see one of:

and various others. Billy Goats can do exactly at least the jailing part
and most likely there are other similar services that provide the same
functionality. The upgrade portion really depends on the installed
software base of course. Without somebody actually doing the upgrade and
most likely not even removing the virus/bot etc in place, not much can
be done in that area, especially in non-ISP environments where you don't
have root on the PC. This portion at least quarantines the box and then
allows you to simply instruct the user in the common methods of battling
the problem that the user has.
