    Default excite.com

    Don't know if this was the right forum to post this in, but here's my problem. Installed SB 1.6 yesterday on a few computers and ran the updates and immunized them and ran a spyware scan. All seems good. Later i get a complaint that the computers won't let anyone sign in to excite.com. They can visit the site fine, just can't login. So i undid the immunization and all works great. Any idea what's going on? I'd rather not leave these computers non-immunized. Thanks.

    Spybot's immunization process adds excite.com to the registry to stop the storing of cookies from excite.com. To see if the blocking of cookies from excite.com is causing the problem, try the following:
    • Go into Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet options > Privacy tab.
    • Then in the "Settings" section click the "Sites" button.
    • In the "Per Site Privacy Actions" dialog section near the bottom titled "Managed websites", scroll down to "excite.com" you will see that it says "Always Block".
    • Highlight the entry by clicking on it and then click the "Remove" button.
    • Back out of the dialogs by clicking "OK" followed by "OK".

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.
