could be they've altered something such as redirects for different countries so it senses you're in NI and trys to dump you onto a certain page but theres been a typing malfunction and its dumping you at a page that don't exist

Maybe they have changed the path to the address you want. Have you tried the www address with no "/" in it, just up to the .com/.co.uk or whatever?

You say "log on" rather than just viewing a page. Is it possible that you have mistyped your username and/or password, and the page that reports a failed login is missing?

A URL would be handy, otherwise we are just clutching at straws.

Unless you're accessing it through a URL you've typed/link you've copied/a bookmark, there's not much you can do. The page you are looking for does not exist at the URL you are trying to access it. If it has moved, only the webmaster can put it back in the right place.

You may have just mistyped the URL in which case you can fix it by retyping it correctly. Otherwise, unless you have access to the websites files etc. you can't do much about it yourself. Trying different browsers and such like won't help. The file isn't there.

No. A 404 error reports a missing webpage, not incorrect login details. The page that she is trying to access is not there at the URL she is trying to access it from.

I wonder if it is a login form, and that the form is trying to login using /login.php?action=login or something, and someone has faffed around on the site and accidentally renamed login.php or used the wrong path in the form code... meaning it can't find login.php and brings up the 404 error.

Might be something completely different though, OP might not even be able to get to the form.

Like I said, without a specific URL we are flailing around in the dark.

What I meant with the failed login, is that the user is redirected to another page (which is quite possible with a php-encoded site) which has gone awol for some reason, in which case a failed login will give a 404 error.

Logic flow:
login.php has form with username and password fields and a login button.
When user clicks the button, the username and password the user entered are checked against the database.
If valid -> go to good page
If not valid -> go to bad page.

This happens to me on certain websites and I really can't think at all what could be causing it but for some reason I have a feeling it may be my anti-virus software blocking websites with particular high issues with virus' and spam. This never happened before I downloaded the avast software.

If the OP could at least tell us the website address then that would really aid us in being able to solve the problem...
