Suddenly I'm getting the:    Ooops! I can't find the page you're looking for  MSG when trying to access my sites.
No changes have been made, to anything, not even a new post in days.
This happens with V.1.5.7 & V.1.6  , both running on different sites on same godaddy web hosting account.
Same error occurs regardless of browser used.
why?

I would change the customErrors tag to the following in your web.config file.  After making this change, you should get an actual error message instead of the generic redirect to the "cannot find this page" page.

<customErrors mode="Off"/>

Thanks for the reply.
Found out that the problem stemmed from having my FTP hacked.
The kindly hackers only targeted every default.asp, index.htm, and .js file and added there URL redirect.
replaced all infected files with my back up and the my FTP log helped find any other files written to.
This is reason enough to not use 123456  as a password.
strangely my 10 character alpha numeric password was not strong enough.
the new one is.
