Hello. Suddenly, almost every form (such as a forum registration) I fill out on my home computer (I'm at work presently) gives me a "bad verb" error when I submit the form. Nothing has changed recently on my computer except that I replaced SP's host file with the host file from msmvps.org. Could that be the problem? If not, any idea what could be the problem (other than the user)?

By the way, I get an error whether I use Firefox 1.5 or IE6 to submit the form. The error is slightly different in IE.

I think it had something to do with my hosts file. I tried replacing my hosts file (to help with ad blocking and spyware). I went back to the original hosts file, and the problem was resolved.
