It is likely that the whole network is infected... I suggest downloading the tools discussed in the FAQ and the article "So how did I get infected in the first place?" which are both linked at the top of each page... Use those tools to scan all of your computers and clean them up... Make sure you install an effective firewall and other protections so that you don't go through this again... Many business are being infected to use as servers for malware and attack other computers...

As much as possible, try to clean all of the computers at the same time or keep the uncleaned ones disconnected from your network until you have time to clean them... It is likely they will infect each other if they are networked, so you will never get them all clean if they stay connected...
