A site of ours is reloading continously without aparent reason, only in IE. (every 2 sec. about) It's a form from a CMS. In Opera no problems at all.

Anybody experienced something similar? Might be a Virus? It's only affecting one domain, and only if there is a form on the page.
Any ideas highly apreciated!

Same observation on one server. Much more than 2 reloads a second but only the home page is reloaded whatever the visitor is viewing.

Certain js cause that side effect. Try commenting out ALL the javascript on that page and see if it still refreshes.

I am also experiencing the same problem with my site strangely when trying to do a e404 redirect. My e404 is now reloading more than 60 times a minute but not doing the redirect. I have a simple line in the header of the e404 page as follows:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="0;URL=mysite">
I was reading somewhere that the refresh tag causes problems sometimes. I would appreciate any advice on either how to enhance it or use any other possible simple code for a e404 redirect.

I managed to sort out the problem for my e404 page by using the following javascript:
<script type="text/javascript">
function E404(){window.setTimeout("location.href = 'mysite' + '?404=' + location.href", 0)}
