Content Encoding Error






If I do a search from the search window then click on a link, if the page loads at all I get this message:

Content Encoding Error

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.


 *   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
 Then there is a button for 'Try Again.'
