Are you on a windows server?

If so, please ask your host to check the error logs.

I am indeed, it seems to have stopped happening now, or after slowing down anyway. If it happens again I'll 'pop a cap in his bottom'.


Thanks Marco.

You might also find some usefull threads on vBulletin.com about htis. But this is a pretty generic IIS error message that can have many causes (and solutions).

Try the following google search: http://www.google.com/search?as_q=The+specified+CGI+application+misbehaved+by+not+returning+a+complete +set+of+HTTP+headers&hl=nl&num=10&btnG=Google+zoeken&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&lr=&cr=&as_ft=i&as_filetype=&as_qdr=all&as_occt=any&as_dt=i&as_sitesearch=www.vbulletin.com&as_rights=&safe=images

OK, it hasn't stopped happening.

Interestlingly it also happens when using FTP, and seems to happen more at peak times.
