I de-infected a windows XP system with SP3 and IE7. Once I did that,
http no longer loaded in IE. It does not work in portable firefox
either. I can type in ftp:// ftp address and IE works. Likewise I
can use https:// and the page loads!!!
What is going on:

I tried:
1) Reset ie7 as per MS
2) Removed IE 7
2a) IE6 would not load http either
3) reapplied SP3
4) Repair install win winxp cd.
5) Deleted and re-installed network card

This is where I am now. Still no http://. Since multiple
applications are affected, I do not think it is a browser helper.

Any Idea?

Try restarting the WebClient service. You can access the Services console via either:
a) Control Panel > Administrative Tools (which is under Performance and Maintenance if you are viewing the CP in Category View) > Services
or the easier and faster way...
b) Typing "services.msc" (minus the quotes, of course) into a Run line.

I ran the issue by an instructor of mine, and he said that my suggestion above could do the trick, but he thinks it may be more of a firewall issue.
