Do you have filesharing enabled with access from a windows computer? Did you lock down permissions on your home directory so only you have permissions to write there? Shut down samba until you wipe the drive and reinstall Windows on the infected machine. Unplug both machines from the network until you secure both computers. Don't run with administrator rights on the windows machine or as root on the Linux machine. Pick good logon passwords and use "security = user" on samba. Don't allow guest access. Don't run a network service on the Linux machine until you find out how they are getting in.
