JAVA 6 update 2 if fine. (i see you went through those same steps with Ken, sorry)
Take a look in your IE Security Settings.
Set all Zones to Default Levels.
Did you update your Norton AntiVirus?
Did that Update include the whole Norton Security Suite?
Check your Norton Settings. Anything there that looks like it could be Totally blocking active content from the Web?
MSN Toolbar and Toolband
Have you allowed additional security utilities to be installed through either MSN or Yahoo Toolbars?
It's personal preference, but if you don't use either MSN or Yahoo toolbars, consider Uninstalling them completely and stick with Google Toolbar.
Some infections "mimic and replace" Microsoft operating system files.
In the process of cleaning out the infection, the Operating System may actually be left with missing MS files.
Please Run System File Checker...
Start - Run - (type)sfc /scannow - Enter <-- notice the required space before the "\"
Have your XP installation CD handy, because if SFC identifies missing or corrupt OS files it will need to copy from the source to replace the files.
