Buffer Overflows?

What happens when one gets bit by a buffer overflow?
Would the first step to be is to diconnect the PC from the LAN and reinstall Windows even if AV says it has blocked it?

Thanks

You mean the one you commented about here:
»Buffer Overflow blocked by AV, what should I do?

Generally buffer overflow should be stopped by DEP.
If you have an alert from an A/V you will need to post more info, as it could be anything from, bad programming of software to malware and anything in between.

What A/V, what specific alert, give details etc, as generally speaking you can not get a specific answer to your question. See the links posted in the other topic.

Also you shouldn't start 2 topics for the same question.
I'm betting this one will get locked.
