ad banner not found?

10 posts in this topic

I'm getting a Not Found error msg for the bottom half of the ad links. The sideshow/bowen/etc link part is displaying but the bottom half is white with "Not Found" showing up. Anyone else having this issue?

Ive recently fixed the skin and done various cleanup shit, ive possibly broken the ads (which I cant see anyways)

If the error is fairly constant can you get the target of the image it cant find, so I can see if its me or them!

Edit, with ads visible this is what I see:

So I am getting a similar error across some other sites. yahoo mail, ebay and a few others give me a http 404 error message. I ran ATF cleaner to help fix an issue where I got some type of virus via yahoo mail. every time I tried to click on an email I got redirected to some ad or error message. I googled that and ran ATF cleaner to fix. That fixed the issue but I think that's right about the time this missing ad banner showed up.

Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do?

1) Search your system for hosts.txt, delete everything in it except 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

2) Download and run this

3) ????

4) Profit

Slashdot meme aside, you probably have one of those nefarious little virii that reroute your clicks places, as usual they tend to be broken resulting in 404 fun

Try the above and a damn good scan with your scanner of choice.

It was the hosts file. Finding that file I saw some mvp type file and looks like when I ran AT cleaner I also ran a batch file to create a new hosts file. That file had a ton of line items which I am guessing was blocking all the ads that I couldln't see. Thanks Ady!
