I use ebay alot. Never had a security alert. I upgraded my computer's internet service, PeoplePC yesterday, as soon as I did so and logged in every time i go to ebay I get the following security alert, and I don't just get one, I get like twenty in a row, I keep clicking ok, then another pops up. I have gone into tools>internet options>security and also privacy, tried setting everything at lowest possible setting but nothing is helping, is this an ebay problem and just a coincidence it happened the very hour I upgraded or is something checkmarked in my advanced settings that shouldn't be? Everything has just been restored to default in the security settings..... I don't know if this matters or not but also as soon as I upgraded I got a Bartshell error every time I log onto the internet. after I close it I can reopen the browser and surf, except for those security alerts....Thanks for helping.

This is most likely a problem with either ebays security certificate, or your internet browser. If the problem persists, then post again but this should be only temporary.

It most likely happens because of your browser's security settings.

Which browser are you using?

I am using IE, 6 I think, the latest version anyway. I really don't think it is ebay because I used ebay about an hour before updating, then less than an hour after and that's when this security alert kept coming up. I just don't know which box to check or bullet to mark in the settings....thanks

What exactly did you update and what did the update entail?

Did you load new software? If so, whose was it?
