XP Anti-Spyware 2011.  How does it get in?

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I have no admin privileges to any local workstation for my cliens.  Also McAfee AV is up to date.  How does this thing gets in?  I already got 3-4 users infected.  Luckily malawarebytes easily removes it.

Still wondering what can be improved.  Better antivirus antispyware solution?  UPdate more frequently?

Please advice.  Thanks!!
