I can not open eBay listings - my listings & the listings of other sellers. I am getting a HTML parsing error. Any simple corrections?

Hi.  I did not get that message yesterday but for several hours I kept getting all kinds of stupid error codes & messages just trying to open various ebay pages. 


I got tired of that & went to my control panel & deleted cookies, temp internet files, browsing history & rebooted.   Itcleaned up a ton of ram & my problem was solved.


I usually have to do this about once a week as ebay is a memory gobbler.


Good luck, Jim.
