For no obvious reason Internet Explorer, won’t load eBay, other sitse are just fine, but eBay won't come up.

Ebay is currently experimenting with a beta version of their site and are having obvious issues. They are not going to admit they are having a problem, but, they are having problems. Major changes have occurred at ebay in the past six months. Meg Whitman has retired as of Mar. '08. She was running the show for the past 10 years. The leadership doesn't seem to have a clue. Point of fact: Current ebay ceo and founder Pierre Omidyar in he's limited common sense, has now decreed that buyers must have a near perfect rating to bid on items, this is absurd. This is the kind of stuff that is deteriorating ebay. Yes, they are the biggest, however, if they don't right their ship they are going to lose millions of users and create an opening for a competing auction service to take over their market share, which is dwindling everyday. Patience is my only suggestion.

    If eBay would remove all the "junk", it would run better. It's an auction/buying site, not a social site.

HI. I am having trouble signing in to my account. Sometimes i can get in but when i want to start selling it goes back to sign in page. Pls advice. Thanks.

If you are trying to access eaby, or many other sites for that matter..

And when you try to navigate its closing internet explorer or signing you out, you need to reset your security settings..

If that doesnt work, you can try resetting internet explorer itself as a whole, and that is probably the best way to proceed..

here is how to do so,,

# Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer (if it is running).
# If you use Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER:
# Click the Advanced tab.
# Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again.
# When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box.
# Start Internet Explorer again.

Thank you for trying out fixya and i hope this helps!

Your Ratings is very important to me
