how to remove the conficker virus

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi i have a client that has the above virus on thier system but i am struggling to get it removed, so far i have the conficker removal tool running in the login script and have disabled the task scheduler on the server.

the antivirus i am using is ESET NOD32 gets rid of the file the virus is trying to execute but then it happens again about 40minutes later.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how i should go about getting rid of this problem??

Many Thanks
