Default Cleaned virus but some sites are restricted now?

I was hit with a virus call security 2010 or something. I deleted it but it left me with two problems. One was a disabled task manager which I enabled through the registry and the other was, what looks to be, a few restricted or blocked select sites in my favorites. Most sites I have no problems with. I'm running Windows XP and using browser IE 7.0.

Here is the screen that appears at these sites


I have reset my internet settings, put these sites in my trusted sites list, cleared all history, temp files, etc. There is nothing checked in my LAN settings so all clear there.

some of the sites that display this are:

weather.com
photobucket
myspace
youtube
facebook


Any help would be appreciated!

MBAM is a fix all for the most part. When combined with Super Anti-Spyware, CCleaner, and Microsoft Security Essentials I have met no virus I couldn't clean. Although once a computer is infected i guess its never really "clean" again.
