Hi, I can see by this forum and on Google that there is a problem with loading Ebay.

My problem is that I cannot get Ebay homepage to load either from my PC or laptops on Internet Explorer. All the shortcuts and even from the address bar just leaves it hanging. I have cleared cookies and the cache. Have done virus/spyware etc. scans. All setting are as they have been for years.

HOWEVER, if i sign onto AOL then go to Ebay from there....business as usual, (fine, in other words)

Any ideas?

Try this. Go Start > Run > type: "cmd" In the window that appears type: "ipconfig /flushdns". Close the command box.

Download HostsXpert - Hosts File Manager
  • Extract (unzip) HostsXpert.zip to a a permanent folder on your hard drive such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Double-click HostsXpert.exe to start the program.
  • When the program opens, click the "Restore MS Hosts File" button in the left pane.
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?" (if available).
  • Click "Restore Microsoft's Hosts file" when prompted and then click "OK".
  • Exit Hoster when done.
Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

Thanks for all your suggestions. Last night as an experiment I unplugged my wireless modem/router from the mains. When I switched it back on this morning my PC and networked laptops all work on all sites on IE as normal so I guess problem solved although I don't understand why!
