I originally placed this in the Vista forum by accident. Newbee mistake...:rolleyes:
When signed into eBay I cannot search or click on any watched items. It goes to a blank page with a little yellow triangle in the bottom left corner of the screen over the word 'Done'. When I click on the triangle it gives me this error :
HTML Parsing error: Unable to modify the parent container element before the child element is closed (KB927917)
Also, if I do a search with Google, I cannot go past the first page of the search. I click on next or the page # and it does nothing.
I tried the reset in IE and it works for a few times than it goes back to the same thing.
I even reinstalled XP thinking it might be bad drivers.
I have IE* on two other machines, 1 laptop and a desktop and no problems with eBay or Google searching with them.
This machine is a Dell Optiplex 620 with 3 gig of ram, dual processor, 750 gig HD and XP Pro version 2002 service pack 3.
I do have Firefox installed and it works with eBay and Google just fine but I really would like to keep IE if possible.

Is it IE8?

The best way to fix this is to uninstall ie8 and to do this you'll have to uninstall sp3. Then reinstall.
