When I go to check out, I choose PayPal and my Internet Explorer Stops Working. I have not had this problem before. Suggestions anyone?

Assuming you are using Windows 7, if you have not upgraded IE to version 9, do so now. Apparently on some computers you need to go to the IE tab labeled tools and select compatibility view. Or use another browser like google chrome, firefox, aol, there are many out there, one may be more compatible with your system.

A recommendation: switch to Firefox.  Also, set your browser settings so that the cookies, cache, history, etc., are cleared every time you close the browser.

Firefox has long been the most compatible browser with eBay

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

I use IE9 and just checked-I was able to log into my PayPal acct directly from my page no problem.

Tried FireFox twice-it crashed my PC twice-I won't try it again.

 

I stick with IE9 and have Chrome as a backup-that works fine for me.

Use Firefox instead of IE.
