    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.
