Yep. For some reason, IE 7 will not allow me to load the page at
www.excite.com and, also strange, does not respond to search queries with
phrases like "internet explorer 7 will not load excite home page" or "unable
to access excite email". Now, if I delete the word "excite" in those
queries, I get a response.

I vaguely recall seeing somewhere that some people were experiencing the
same issue and were being told that in some circles Excite is considered to
be spyware prone and a security risk so IE was not allowing access to the
Excite domain. This is a very vague recollection on my part.

I had this EXACT issue: I could not load excite.com, nor could I
search for IE not loading excite.com on any search page. I removed
spybot, and now excite loads with no problem. Hope that helps!

I had the same problem and traced it to the IE add ons from Spybot
S&D. Once I disabled those, it all worked again.
