Hi, people!

 

I have been trying to clear this problem for months now and am absolutely desperate.

 

Images either do not load at all, load very slowly, or very selectively, and not always. Occasionally all works fine for awhile but gets progressively worse.

 

Happens in IE as well as FF, but *only* eBay images are affected. Other trading sites and auction sites no problem; general surfing no problem - just eBay.

 

Suspect I may have piclked up a Trojan or Data Miner that is tracking my searches...??? Have also noticed that 'Saved searches' that should send daily emails are not working....but the site appears not to be a 'fake' - appears to be the genuine article (but how would I know??)

 

I have a Custom PC, Windows XP, Intel Core2 Quad, Firefox & IE

 

Have attempted to find malware with MBAM to no avail.

 

Have tried every other 'trick' available to improve eBay images. Have tried uninstalling Virus software. Checked for Add-on incompatabilities. Tweaked the registry via 'pipelining' and other similar tweaks to improve images downloads.

 

Emptied Temp folder; cache etc. No improvement. Defragged, decluttered, Disc Cleanup, the lot. No change.

 

Nothing I have done is working.

 

Have even tried logging in from a different computer and same problem is there, so assume it is 'linked' to my eBay ID somehow....

 

Can anyone suggest what else I could do?

I am still waiting for someone to assist me with this issue.

 

Have been doing some reading on other forums and it might be I have some sort of 'Click-thru' issue.

 

The other issue that I didn't mention is that the pop-up ads don't work either, but I don't believe I have any ad-blocking software active - at least, not that I have installed..!

 

Can someone please help me.......
