IE6 gained some security features with SP2 and other people have complained
of similar problems with login to eBay (see google).
I don't know a definite solution - if you have already tried clearing
cookies and temporary internet files then you could try in IE select "Tools"
"Internet options" then "Privacy" then "Sites"
Check that there is not already an entry for ebay.co.uk to block cookies -
if there is, then remove it or try adding the site and click on "allow" to
always allow cookies.
Otherwise, you could try using a different browser such as Mozilla Firefox.
