Excite.com problems

by Bill Veik / April 28, 2005 12:01 AM PDT

All of a sudden I um unable to access any part of Excite.com for my custommized settings or my e-mail. This particular site just hangs, but it is the only site that I have problems with.

I am running XP (completely updated), AVG Antivirus, Microsoft Spyware Beta, and a combo of Spybot and X-Cleaner. All systems test clear, and excite.com is listed as a trusted site in IE. Any ideas where the problem lies? Thanks.

excite.com likes to flood a system with cookies. most peoples puters "defenses" don't allow it forcing you to completly allow all cookies or perhaps trying what the previous poster had suggested. i say, and its just me, if a place like exite.com absoluly has to add it's tracking cookies amoung oters, why go there? if it is just for the free email, yahoo or hotmail would be a better choice as with them, you do not have to subscibe to SPAM, just see ads from time to time, and both offer better security and more starage.

Cookies

My system is set to allow all cookies-I use google toolbar and other things so there are 0 popups. I run spy audit every 3 days to make a list of the damaging cookies and manually delete them. Nothing has visually changed on my system, its just that this 1 site (already an apporved site in my privacy settings) does not work. RegScrub finds 0 problems.

What about running IspFix and altering winsock?

Thanks for the responses.
