If u are using IE6, do u SP1 for it, atleast. As 128-bit SSL was introduced with SP1 for IE6.
Also check if ur e-bay signin page is the url: https://signin.ebay.com/
not something else otherwise u have been a victim of phising.

If so and that comes up with a lock, then I would agree with darth_ash.
I just went in the site and it shows up the lock.

I clicked on your link, arrived at Ebay site but with the message "Page cannot be found" tried several times.
Trawled to the sign in page via the Ebay home page and found it. Everything appears as it should but still no Lock Icon.
Not Phishing because I get the same result (No Padlock Icon) on any secure web page I visit. The phisherman can't get them all. Anyway I'm wise to that one.

If you notice from a very recent post I made. I have had to switch to my laptop which I haven't used on the net for ages, and I can't remember if sp2 is on it or not.
I'm using IE6. how can I find out if sp2 is loaded?

Help menu -> About Internet Explorer.
Check if the "Update Versions" field is SP2 or SP1 atleast.
Also check if ur "Cipher Strength" field is 128-bit

that is the microsoft windows updates, and it would update EVERYTHING that is on your computer to do with windows XP or some other version of windows.

I will try loading SP2. Have it on disc.
