Getting 404 error, OK in internet explorer, have deleted cookies, cleared cache, permissions, the works, yet it's still doing it - for my own url!

Each time I type my own url into Firefox I get this error: "Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request." Yet it's OK in Internet Explorer. I've done everything suggested ie. delete cookies, change permissions, clear cache. I've even removed the website and asked my host to set up a new root, uploaded a completely different website, and I still get the error. http://www.bevmattocks.co.uk/

You can use this other antivirus for your computer

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.

Thanks - I looked into it further because friends could view it on their Firefox browsers. I uninstalled Spybot and now it works OK, so Spybot seems to have been blocking it for some reason. Now to decide what to do about Spybot, as I like to have Spybot on my system for obvious reasons!
