In recent days, whenever I access an ebay page which is several screens long
(such as a list returned from a search), Internet Explorer uses 100% CPU for
about 15 seconds. Until it is finished I am unable to scroll down. This
makes searching, looking at items and returning to the search list a very
slow process.

Does anybody know what causes this? Incidentally has been better today
(Sunday)

cheers

Davy

I've had a similar thing recently, when searching for things.
It is Javascript, probably poorly written, which using my browser is
easy to turn off.
Try it without, and see if it makes a difference.

Using IE?

I use Opera, which lets me have a folder of bookmarks so I can open all
my favourite Ebay searches in separate windows simultaously, and
Ctrl-Sh-click on links in search results to open the items in separate
background windows.

I have to use IE at college and it's soooooo clunky compared to Opera.

I remember reading recently how IE was asking the local computer to run
the DLL URL's rather than the server? Perhaps it's something to do with
that, although we use firefox wherever possible.

Recently I tried to look at eBay from a computer at work.

The IT department has crippled all of the computers so that they won't
run executables from websites.

So, IE asked me if I wanted to run eBayIASPI.dll or save it - and when
I said run, it said "you can't".

Bah!
