You did not perform a repair install you simply reinstalled your OS on your current drive. See if you have a windows.old wor a windows.000 directory.

Malware scanners don't always catch everything. And your system configuration will be preserved when doing a repair install, that includes any network configuration or malware that may be loading.
First check for add-ons or other settings that might be modifying your web page or preventing access to it. Are you using IE7 or 8? You can start either of these in "IE Safe mode". Close IE then click "Start" -> "Run", type "iexplore –extoff" and press Enter.
Then check to see if you have a proxy set. Go to "Internet Options" in your Control Panel. Click the "Connections" tab. Click "Lan settings" button toward the bottom. In the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog window, check to see if "Use a proxy server..." checkbox is checked. If it is, uncheck it and click Ok. Click Ok again and restart your IE.
Then check to see if you have entries in your hosts file. Click "Start" -> "Run" and paste the following into the box:
Then press Enter.
look through the file that pops up for any of the sites you are having problems accessing. If you find them comment out the line by putting a # character in front of the line.
Close the file and save it after making modifications. Reboot the machine and try to access your site again.

there are two files within the /etc directory under c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc hosts and lmhosts thats hosts with LM not an IMhosts. The hosts file should have 1 entry in it.
Try this: How do I reset the hosts file back to the default?

If you are comfortable backing up any needed data, formatting the drive and wiping everything out completely, then reinstalling XP and drivers and software, then restoring your backed up data that would be the most sure way of fixing any problems that were caused by your malware infection.
If you are using a router on your network and sharing it with other people, you might check to make sure noone has blocked access to your site on your router using MAC or IP address based filtering options that may be present in the router. I don't know the social dynamic in your place, but that's the other place that could be blocking your access to specific internet sites. Just mentioning it as a possiblity.

I went to a photoshop site, that played a "never gunna give you up " that had some guy dancing and when I tried to turn it off it moved all over away from my mouse. I shut down the computer..ran my nod32 three times and looked through every file and could not find it. I fear it is still exploiting somewhere. LOL..
Thank you for your patience .. and I will contribute what I can here.
