Keep getting this virus: w32/protoride.com

Question

I keep getting this virus: w32/protoride.com. My Mcfee cleans it right away and then I get it again. I'm not sure where to look for the problem or how to fix it.

To whom it may concern:

McFee might not actually be deleting it, but it does find it If you want to delete this file manually you need to boot up into safe mode Once you boot up into safe more locate the file and delete it manually.

Another thing you can do is scan for spyware with a program called Spybot, which is free You can download spybot at www.safer-networking.org After you download and install Spybot make sure you update it Once you update it scan your system and delete any spyware you might have.
