So the latest Windows update screwed up and wouldn't allow me to sign in. I was worried it had corrupted my user profile however after rollback to the previous version it worked fine. Anyone else have this issue?

I have a premium Windows laptop which I want to sell. I'm looking to use eBay, accepting only PayPal as payment and Special Delivery. Do you have any advice to not somehow get scammed?

I sold one and it was fine, as long as you make sure you use PayPal and have tracking for delivery (buy it through eBay) then you are covered for the buyer being hacked and gooseberry fool, then if there are any marks etc. make sure they are all photographed etc. and on the listing that way if they say anything you have evidenced it on your listing so they can't say they didn't know.

Cheers for the advice. Why is it important to get tracking through eBay rather than the Post Office?

It's slightly cheaper through eBay and it automatically add tracking etc to the purchase.

eBay also only cover buyer bullsbit on tracked stuff and they are banana splits so I figure buy it via them and reduce the number of bullshit reasons they can use to not cover you.
