WebBroswer Control Problem (Simple 2 lines of code!)

P: 1
Hello!

I am having a very weird problem that I cant find any solution on the Internet (after so many years!). I am trying to code a C# program and I am using the WebBroswer control.

The code is very simple. 1 button and 1 webbroswer control. When the button is clicked I want it to navigate to ebay.com

  1. using System;
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;
  3. using System.ComponentModel;
  4. using System.Data;
  5. using System.Drawing;
  6. using System.Linq;
  7. using System.Text;
  8. using System.Windows.Forms;
  9.  
  10. namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
  11. {
  12.     public partial class Form1 : Form
  13.     {
  14.         public Form1()
  15.         {
  16.             InitializeComponent();
  17.         }
  18.  
  19.         private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  20.         {
  21.             // This works!
  22.             //webBrowser1.Navigate("http://www.google.com");
  23.  
  24.             // This generates "vshost has stopped working"
  25.             webBrowser1.Navigate("http://www.ebay.com");
  26.  
  27.         }
  28.  
  29.  
  30.     }
  31. }
When the ebay.com loads it generates an error saying "vshost has stopped working" and the application closes. Note that this happens 95% of the time. For some reason some times it works!?!

If however i try google.com it works 100%.

Now for the strange part. Using the second version of the application that works (i.e. webBrowser1.Navigate("http://www.google.com"); ) I search for ebay using google and I manually navigate to ebay.com (meaning I am clicking on the search results link). IT WORKS 100% !

If anyone can help me I would be grateful. I cant find any other info on this problem. Thank you for reading
