Try running a scan with the below AV software in the past I've had it go under a virus/worm/spybot's radar and remove it.
Also check out whats in your msconfig startup list (or get into the registery yourseld) or use this ( http://www.windowsstartup.com/
) to see if there is anything you can get rid of during a restart. Try checking the list of services to see if there is anything weird in that too.
Also see if you can install and run teatimer (Spybot resident) with Spybot to see if there are any programs adding entries to your registry on you after you remove them with the above.
Other than that got through your installed programs in Add/Remove and be ruthless. But you've probably already done that.
the other thing to check is the setting on both your personal firewall and LAN firewall to see if they are blocking those sites. Has there been a transparent proxy installed that is filtering the websites?
Are there any other symptoms?
Another thought, do a Norton AV scan by booting from the CD with the lastest signatures on a floppy, the Norton on your HD might be owned by the virus.
