You can remove it with malwarebytes antimalware and combofix from bleepingcomputer.com. To help stop it from spreading while cleaning I would disconnect everything from the domain and start from the servers and work my way down.

It would be hard to determine where it originated but you can use wireshark to filter packets being sent and try to go from there.

I would use a more well known company would not use freeware or shareware prodcuts to protect your server.

I suggest Kaspersky
