I have a virus, can anyone help?

I'm sure one of you have seen it before, it's an AIM vuris. It's called w32.Allim. You get it when someone randomly IMs you and says something along the lines of "Look! I found a picture of you!" And you click and download the virus. Now, I have all the Norton Antivirus programs and all that just, everythings updates and just right, like it should be.

My problem is that about 3 times a minute Norton Antivuirus pups up saying 'High Risk, Norton Antivirus have found and delete the virus named w32.allim off your computer, then it scans like 3 files and deletes it and its all good. But the next minute, its poping up again. It's really anoying and ive search 10 pages of google to fix it, and nothing works.

If anyone can help, please, thank you.

I've used SpyBot to remove those adware/malware programs in the past. Seems to work pretty good for me. Google "SpyBot" and it should give you a couple of places you can download it for free.
