HTTP 400 Bad Request
I'm getting this a lot on IE7 and firefox. any ideas whats wrong, or how to fix it? Please! It's driving me mad because I can't get onto a lot of sites because of it. It's not Ultimate so I have posted this in the wrong place. It is Vista Home Premium that I have...

I have found the answer to my own question. It was my anti-virus PCGUARD given free by Virgin Media to their customers that was causing this problem. I have removed the PCGUARD, put on another one....and it is now working correctly!! I can now surf the net with no error pages now on both IE 7.0 & the latest Firefox.
I have edited this to help others with the same problem, that are unable to find an answer to it!! It worked for me!!

Right, I'm answering my own post on here to help others out, seeing as there has been no replies to my question.
I have worked out my problem with 'HTTP 400 Bad Request' on IE 7.0. It turns out it was my 'PCGUARD anti-virus/spyware' that is given free by Virgin Media. I have now got another Anti-virus elsewhere, and I can now surf ok on all sites again. No more error messages!!
I do hope this will help others that are having the same problem as me. Thats why I bothered to reply to my own post!
