I can ping a website but when I go to INTERNET explorer it gives me page can't be displayed, removed spyware and still doing it.
the kak.tha virus still showing but before even with the virus INTERNET explorer was working just fine, I tried repairing the INTERNET explorer and it did not help.

Any ideas before I format and re-install.

Thanks

try clearing all internet temporary files/history and cookies. Also make sure IE is not set to Work Offline.

Another dangerous aspect of this Internet worm is the ability to continuously re-infect unpatched systems if the preview pane is enabled and you browse messages, including ones in your own "Sent Items" folder, which contain this Internet worm. This is another strong reason to update to the security patch, if not already.*
