Yes, you have a virus. Run an up-to-date virus scan immediately.
The only real way to prevent such things is to make sure you've installed all service releases/security patches, and ALWAYS be running an antivirus program with updated virus signatures.

You can Disable the Windows Scripting Host.
http://service4.symantec.com/SARC/sarc.nsf/html/win.script.hosting.html with Noscript.exe

It like a on and off button so if you need Windows Scripting Host for something to work it's very easy to turn back on.

I have the java Disable in my email in Netscape
and a ZoneAlarm firewall that has Mail safe and that has worked great.

Might I suggest you also go to Home Trend and scan.... If you have a trojan or worm or virus Home Trend will find it. Its a free online scan.

The best I've used ... & I use it plus my own board virus scanner.

Savvy :)
