    Vista Home Premium. IE7

    One of my "home pages", http://my.excite.com will no longer load. The tab
    for this URL shows "Connecting", but the connection does not ever happen.
    I've tried to connect to the more generic http://www.excite.com , and cannot
    connect with that, either.

    I am able to connect to this page with other browsers such as Firefox,
    Opera, and even Safari (windows version).

    This is something that has only happened recently, and I can think of
    nothing that may have caused the problem.

    Ah ha!!!

    I found the problem and it's called "Spybot, Search and Destroy".

    I decided to run IE7 without Add-ons and see the results, and excite.com
    opened. Checking the IE Add-ons (Tools, Manage Add-ons, Enable or Disable
    Add-ons), I found one by "Safer Networking" which is "Spybot". I had just
    installed the new Spybot version 1.5. So I disabled the Add-on, and all is
    ok again. Evidently, Spybot doesn't like Excite.
