If your A-V would not detect it you can try the Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool (http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx)

So also try the Conficker Removal Tool (http://www.sophos.com/support/knowledgebase/article/54457.html)

They are not fool-proof but will help till a permanent solution is found...

Also download the patch from the following link (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms08-067.mspx)

Prevention Methods :

Apply the MS08-67(given above) patch
Disable file and print sharing
Strengthen your password
Turn off autorun for USB devices
Apply a device control policy
Make Sure That your that patches, anti-virus and firewall are installed, running and up-to-date.
