Hi All my father in law came off holiday last week to find that he can not get onto ebay,for example he can get the home page but as soon as he clicks "my ebay" the ie can not show this web page click here for diagnostics,when you do that it brings up the ms code error 12196.I have googled this and tried various fixes for him but to no avail.I have reset his ie8 back to original,but still not working.Also if he goes onto a insurance web site then clicks "get a quote" it goes again into windows can not show this page?Please help

As it an error using java script, I suggest you uninstall and reinstall java.

The error may be caused by one of the latest updates.
