loads of viruses

I am using H+BEDV AntiVir Personal Edition which i have runing in the background and then every couple of days it comes up with this warning:

WARNING: Contains signature of the worm Worm/Tanked.P2P.11!

I have had about 6 of these now (in 2 weeks), and the fact it involves system restore is a bit scary, i always quarantine the file and have done a full H/D check, any ideas why it keeps appearing? BTW i use Windows XP with all patches applied.

To remove a virus completely it is necessary to purge your System Restore i.e. turn it off so that all restore points are deleted as this is where the virus is hiding.Run a virus check and then enable system restore again. If the virus is only showing in your restore files doing this should clear your system.
