Well there's the obvious: make sure your virus definitions are up to date, and that the virus definition engine is also the latest from your vendor.

Do you also run virus detection on your network? It's a good idea. Scan your email servers, your Internet gateways and so on. Make sure all laptops and desktops are individually protected. This is especially important for laptops, since these typically go home at night and "who knows what happens to them" then?!

I am a fan of an environment running 2 different brands of Virus software. For example McAfee on individual workstations and Trend on the servers/network. This is because each vendor uses different engines and different virus definitions, so one brand might pick up a problem before the other, especially with a "new" vieus/worm/trojan.
