ebay is blocked


Recommended Posts

Greetings volvic :)

I did a bit of research and found no information indicating that this site is ebay and ebay's homepage resolves for me just fine. You may wish to see what's listed in the HPHosts database here for that particular IP. I also did some WHOIS queries and nothing related to ebay showed up either.

Have you tried to visit ebay.co.uk / ebay.com?

I'm also getting Malwarebytes pop up warnings for this IP address when using Ebay.co.uk and sometimes other sites.

I also get warnings for but not at any particular site, and less frequently than the one ending .41

Does this mean my machine is infected?

I have AVG Security Suite, and I run Malwarebytes Quick Scan and Spybot Search and Destroy scan every day. Should I be doing more? I only visit a limited number of sites.

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Many thanks, Steven

I'll look into a different firewall. I find the AVG vastly inferior to the free Zone Alarm I had before, in terms of informing me what was trying to contact who... but I was compelled to switch when I upgraded my AVG anti virus. Total swizz!

Will ask for suggestions in the appropriate forum area.

Thanks again.

I'd strongly urge you ditch AVG, and I wouldn't recommend ZoneAlarm either. Instead I'd recommend one of the following;






And to replace AVG, one of the following;


NOD32 (not free)


Kaspersky (not free)


Avira (has a free version)


Avast (has a free version)


I'd also suggest taking a look at the following;

HOSTS files, IP blacklists, toolbars - is it enough?
