Animated Gif to show you how to do this

Here is the way I have my machine configured to deal with eBay.

I have the following in my RESTRICTED SITES zone and I don’t get security warnings or have a problem with slow loading of pages on eBay:


I know it’s a lot to put in your restricted sites zone but you can copy and paste the addresses into a Word or any text document and then cut and paste (one at a time) into your restricted sites zone.

I also run Ad-Aware from Lavasoft, SpyBot S&D and SpywareBlaster (all free programs) to help keep the other garbage off my machine. Click the program names for the correct links. Beware of other anti-spyware programs you may find. Even though some of them are excellent programs, some of them actually load spyware onto your machine. This is the configuration I use and it works for me. Just a little more information - I am running Windows XP Pro with SP2 and I have my “Internet Zone” set to default. There are no entries in my “Trusted Sites” zone.

Good Luck!



Yet another

Due to recent changes requiring a signin for "Completed Items" search on eBay guess this page needs to be updated... To return your ability to view "Completed Items" you will need to remove from your previous Internet Explorer tweak. The instructions below will still speed up page loads on category and search results pages... It will suppress many eBay errors that interfer with your daily activities here... It will have no adverse affects on any other site... The only possible interference you may experience will be if you click the "Refine Search" link from a search results page... Clicking that link will take you to eBay's Advanced Search located at search.ebay with the original search keyword(s) already prepopulated in the text field... An identical Advanced Search exists on pages.ebay and can be used without problems.

FIRST, clear the browser's cache:
A. Click on "Tools" in the IE toolbar...

7. Click "OK" when finished...
8. You should be back to the "Security" tab... Double-check that you have remained in the "Restricted Sites" zone then CLICK "Custom Level"
9. Now adjust your browser settings in the "Restricted sites" zone to these levels:

AND THIRD, turning off script debugging:
Z1. Click on the "Tools" button again in your toolbar.
Z2. Click on "Internet options" again in the dropdown.
