Comment(by tmitchell):

 Just to add to documentation in case others hit this.  I am running on a
 Windows 7 machine with latest (trial ver) of Norton security.  It
 quarantined QGIS automatically for me, but only after I tried to fetch
 plugins.  It simply charged it with "suspicious behaviour" before locking
 up QGIS.  You can manually override, but the default was to just do
 it...even without a warrant or a day in court.. imagine that. :)

 Norton scanned osgeo4w and qgis for viruses and didn't have any issues, so
 it must have been the net access simultaneously hitting various
 repositories, I guess.
