Ensure you are using a proper program such as Norton Firewall or Trend and
insure your virus definitions are up to date.

Also scan for spyware (use SpyBot or similar), again ensure its up to date -
it might be a spyware embeded into IE which is restoring the virus.

Also disable system restore as copies of the virus may be in the restore
files

Note that a virus in a Restore Point is completely innocuous, and
can't cause a problem unless you restore from that Restore Point.
It's not completely necessary, but it's OK to disable System
Restore *after* getting rid of the virus as long as you then turn
it back on, and create a new Restore point.

One thing, not to step on toes but in the system restore, you also need
to slide the amount of restore space to 0%, this will get rid of the
virus in restore only, .Unfortunately it will also do away with restore
points. unless you find the one that has it. Most anti virus programs
won't get rid of it from restore and will keep popping up the message
that it's there unless you do this.
