Possible worm on network

By kashmeir63 ·
Hi,
I have a windows network platform. I have recently been clamping down on the security on the network. Firewalls etc. I believe before I was able to complete this. That there is somekind of trojan worm on my network. When I look at my firewall log. I constantly see computers on the network trying to logon to the internet from within the company. The only way the users can get out on the internet is with a password. So it appears it's unable to get out but keeps constantly trying and therefore slowing down the internet.This will happen many times all through out the the day and even in the middle of the night and morning hours. I don't know how to go about this. I've scanned all the computers(clients,servers). Does anyone know how to go about removeing this? Any help would be appreciated.

Adbots and Spyware will also do this as well as Realplayer and other malware. Run updated spybot and Adaware on everybody and even your servers. I also like Pest Patrol. they all find things the others didn't.
Look in your virus scanning for the ability to find "Unwanted Programs". Mcafee has added this option but it isn't enabled by default and I assume most others will also.
Good Luck,
