XP Home with SP2
IE 6 upgraded to IE7
OmniTech computer

The wife's computer got one of those malwares that want you to pay for protection and removal of viruses. Some version of PC rouge malware scanners. I removed the malware with MalwareBytes, but then IE 6 would not connect to the Internet. The Error message "IE cannot display the webpage" is displayed. Ran sfc /scannow with same results. Checked Tools> Internet Options> Connections > LAN settings > Automatically detect settings. Checked for connectivity with ipconfig/all. All settings normal, (e.g. DHS, default gateway, etc.) Was able to ping www.yahoo.com from cmd prompt. Tried using Yahoo's ip address in IE but received same error message. Tried to access the Internet from Explorer with the same results.

Updated IE 6 to IE 7 with no change.

Any suggestions as to what may be blocking IE?
