This version works differently from the others, and requires a
different installation process. Instead of placing a SnipeIt!
button on your browser toolbar, this version allows you to right-click
an auction item page, and SnipeIt! will appear on the context
menu that appears.
To make this work, we have to ask you to download and install a patch
to your system that will add our SnipeIt! entry to this menu. The
patch is perfectly safe, and actually isn't even a program, it only
modifies a Windows setting.

When asked whether to Run or Save the file, choose
Run. You will receive a message that the file has been successfully
imported into the registry. After this procedure, it is recommended that
you restart your browser. We have had a few reports that users have had
to restart Windows after this patch - so if SnipeIt! eSnipe
does not appear when you right-click a page, please restart Windows.
How does it work? While you are viewing an item that you want to bid
on, right-click the mouse anywhere on the eBay page. A context
(pop-up) menu will appear, and one of the options near the bottom will
be SnipeIt! eSnipe. Select the SnipeIt! eSnipe option. A
window will appear with some of the bid information already filled in
for you. Fill in the remaining fields, and click the Place eBay Bid with eSnipe button. Your bid will be submitted to our server.

Explorer, download and execute the following:
