Cleaning your computer  - and protecting it in the future -  can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected since 1999.

exactly.
Look at startup folder for what is kicking it off, and in taskmanager for what is doing this at runtime. It may be remote control SW, in which case AV ought to catch it, if the spyware proggies didn't.

Solution could be to locate the people who are doing that, and then to let their own neighbors know, for the physical handling of the problem.

You need MS updates, all of them, and a good firewall like ZA to stop things from leaving your system willy nilly - it sounds like you have one of the latter already
