as well as no longer being able to list my items I`m getting this message whenever I try to look at anything on ebay:

"IEXPLORE.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows.
You will need to restart windows.
An error log is being created"

It`s doin` my head in,

What is it?
Is it linked to not being able to submit my listing?
Ebay just told me to clear my cookies which I have done :(

Use a better browser!

I highly recommend opera - www.opera.com

i reckon you got a virus there mate.
the latest ones crash explorer/netscape so you can't download a patch.

I have had a similar problem Paul.

Download Hijack this and check you registry sounds like something nasty has corrupted your explorer. Or download Opera - i have used this explorer and it works fine.

I have almost fixed IE but it still won't dowload from sites without opening an error page - so i am trying toi uninstall MS IE and reinstall it.

Good luck

Definatly NOT - you will screw your system right up.

Go to this link and find a forum on it - you may need to do a scan and then screen capture and post it in a forum for advice.

If unsure do not use hijack - you may be safer to download opera and try using this 1st. Would be the safest option until you have a confirmation from a fix it website on what is up with your explorer.
