This is for those of who you frequent Ebay.

You should be familiar with the 'Search' bar at the top of the page.. It's actually available on most pages within ebay, so you can search from anywhere.

Part of the search bar includes the the 'SEARCH' button, the 'Advanced Search' Link and the text box where you enter your query.

From my experience, I've been able to automatically tell if my computer is infected with Spy/Adware...

if the TEXT box isn't visible but the SEARCH button and Advanced Search link ARE, then you should run your spyware/adware programs.

For about a week straight i could not use the Text box for the search until i acquired some new spyware programs. When i ran them, ALEXA seemed to be the culprit, and once it was removed, the text box in ebay search was once again visible...

Just a little tip for those of you who may have experienced this problem.
