How do I get rid of Contravirus 2.0?

Question

I have a program called Contravirus 2.0 that infiltrated my computer. It keeps reinstalling the program after I go in and remove it. I have a icon on my toolbar that keeps telling me my computer in infected. I run spybot and my virus scans that removes all cookies and adware. How can I "kill" this Contravirus?
