    Thanks Arkitech: we'll check it out.


    IE and Firefox are working here in the UK. Whilst we're checking here, as it seems to be happening to you across all three, it might be worth trying by clearing things your end as well.

    I cleared the cache in my browsers, but the problem persists. I also did a search on the forums from google and I was able follow the links with no issues. Not sure what this means..

    Ugh. With that in mind, it does sound like something at your end, then, but we're checking it out here, anyway.

    Cyber-elves away! :D

    It's not a big deal if it's just my browser, but in the event other users have the issue I figured I would mention it. Also just as another test I ran a few searches on other forums (also using VBulletin) but I did'nt encounter that error. I'm searching through VBulletin's forum to see if I can find a similar occurrence documented there.

    Is it the same regardless of what you search for? The search string seem to be included in the link and if there are some special characters there it might be the security features of the server that kicks in and thinks it's an attack of sorts.
