    Hi All,

    I am having a weird problem on my server. it seems all my other accounts are working correctly but the root account http://www.cooolsolutions.biz doesn't load!

    the browsers think there is a downloadable file there and Windows pops up the 'save/open/cancel' box.

    i did some dns tests and all that, it seems all the internet routing is working okay.

    i tried searching for anything on this, including virus, etc. anybody have any suggesstions?

    should you want to contact me directly, i can be reached at AIM:mr360solutions
    many thanks!

    I am having the same problems too sometimes. I found that my Interner Explorer homepage is set to my website www.soychicano.com. When I try to launch IE it would try to open soychicano.com as a file named /

    I tried other websites on my server and only a small handfull had the same problem. The similarity between these few websites with the problem were that they all had Google's AdSense ads on them. I removed the ads from www.soychicano.com and relaunched IE without any problems.

    I am not sure what the problem is exactly and I am not for certain that it has to do with Google's AdSense ads but I do know this started on my site soon after Google was hit with the MyDoom virus a few days ago.

    I have the Google AdSense ads back on my site and the problem has only happened a few times since I put the ads back on.

    I hope someone else can offer a better explaination to this problem or a solution.

    I don't know if this helps you but I had this problem from time to time also on other sites.
    This is wat I did to resolve this issue :
    In IE.
    Go to Extra => Internet Options => Advanced => Scroll down to Options of HTTP 1.1 and mark both the options (put a V in it).
    press ok and this worked for me, however I'm not connected thrue a proxy server.

    Hope this helps you guys

    Well, I had one of the Guys from JustManaged.com to check out my server for me and found some problems with the kernel. After updating it and a few other minor discrepancies, the error mentioned in this thread ceased.

    I am not a guru at this all so I really have no idea what exactly he did that fixed the problem. I suppose it is a multiple of things.

    Just thought I would share that info.
