How to get rid of W32.Sobig.D@mm virus?

I have deleted this W32.Sobig.D@mm from my computer systems many times but it comes back when I restart my computer system. I have no idea why this is happening. All I need to know how to delete this W32.Sobig.D@mm from my computer system. I will be waiting for the related replies.

Thank for your reply I have tried for the system restore. Restoring my computer system helped me a little but not completely remove the W32.Sobig.D@mm worm from my computer system. Then I have downloaded avast antivirus and also downloaded the updates for avast antivirus from the link given above. The rest of thing was managed by this antivirus. Now my computer system is free any kind of viruses. But I also want to know the preventive measures for avoiding the problem like these in future.
